It was supposed to be a Region 3-AAAA softball doubleheader Saturday at Thomson, but rain put game two on hold.
It was a disappointment to the Liberty County Lady Panthers, who already took a 9-3 win in game one.
“It was a long ride for just one game,” Liberty coach Jerome Standard said.
It also means the game has to be made up, which will put the Lady Panthers back on the bus to Thomson on Friday.
Standard said they gave the game ball to Serena Davenport, who was 2 for 3 with a double, a single and three runs scored.
Kaleigh Fisher was 2 for 5 with two RBIs and Taylor Rine was 1 for 5 with two RBIs. The coach said both players had timely hits to help the team pull ahead. Kathryn Carter and Rachel Smith each had one RBI.
Thomson chipped away at the Lady Panthers, scoring one run each in the third, fourth and fifth inning to keep the game going.
Carter took the win on the mound, going all seven innings and tossing 10 strikeouts.
Liberty was scheduled to play at South Effingham Tuesday and will host Portal at 5 p.m. Thursday.
They will make up the other Thomson game at 5 p.m. Friday.
The Lady Panthers were 11-8 overall and 2-1 in the region going into Tuesday’s action.
