Two days after Liberty County High School beat host Bradwell Institute 12-2 in a softball game Tuesday afternoon at Lady Tiger Field the two teams were at it again.
This time the game was played at Liberty’s home field, and the Lady Tigers started hot and quickly scored two runs in the first inning.
But Mother Nature intervened and the game never got past the first out of the inning. Lightning and pending rain forced school officials to call the game.
Tuesday’s game saw the Lady Panthers and Tigers trade leads before the Liberty girls capitalized on some Lady Tigers errors. Liberty scored a run in the first inning but saw that lead slip away when the Lady Tigers took a 2-1 lead inthe third inning.
Liberty regained the lead, scoring two runs in the fourth inning and shut out the Tigers’ comeback attempt in the bottom of the inning.
The Lady Panthers ignited in the fifth inning with nine unanswered runs to take the win.
Leading the hits for Liberty was Alexis Barnes. She was 3-of-4 with 5 RBIs. Tia Anderson was 2-of-3 with 3 RBIS, Candice Blitch went 2-of-3 at bat.
Meleina Davis got the win on the mound for the Lady Panthers. She pitched the five inning game and tossed five strikeouts.
Lady Tiger Kaylynn Jewell was 1-of-3 with an RBI and Sara Hause was 1-of-2 with an RBI for the Bradwell girls.
Lady Tiger pitcher Josephine Satele pitched 4-1/3 innings strking out six and walking four. Danielle Hennessee came in the final inning as relief.
Thursday, Lady Tigers Jewell and Mya Gilliard were able to reach base off Lady Panther pitcher Madison Winn. The two Lady Tigers later made their way across home plate to give BI a 2-0 lead just 10 minutes into the contest. Bad weather soon moved in and lightning delayed the game.
With more lightning and rain moving toward the area school officials called the game.
