Lady Cats Softball Team Has Season End With Extra Inning Heartbreaking Walk Off Loss to Lovejoy

The Lady Cats Softball Team is headed to the off season after a tough pill to swallow Regional Semifinal Series loss to Lovejoy, 3-2 in an 8 inning walk off in Rockwall Friday night (May 21).

One could make the case where Lovejoy could have gone scoreless.

The Lady Leopards took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third when a throw to first for a possible third out was dropped allowing a run to score.

Lovejoy scored their second run on a play that sure looked like Lady Cat Nylah Lindley beat a Lady Leopard player to first base for a third out that would have negated the game tying run.

Then the winning run in the bottom of the eighth was made possible by a dropped fly that would have been the third out. The Lady Cats outhit the Lady Leopards, 7-5 including the controversial single on the Lindley play.

Crimson Bryant deserved a better fate. She took the pitching loss going 8 innings allowing 5 hits, 3 runs, only 1 which was earned, while striking out 5 and walking just one. The Lady Cats also left 9 runners on base.

Bryant and Nicole Higgins both got 2 base hits. Higgins and Nylah Lindley got RBI’s. Lindley, Parris Pickett and Addison DeSmet had 1 hit apiece. Higgins and Caddell scored 1 run apiece.

The loss ended the most successful Lady Cats season ever, one that progressed to the fourth round of the playoffs for the first time ever and produced a sterling season record of 28-5.
