Lady Wildcats Outhit Blue Eagles to Win
The Lady Wildcats of Paden City came through with some with some good defense and strong hitting to take a sectional victory over rival Magnolia on May 4 in Cameron.
Monday’s battle was a classic that saw the Lady Blue Eagles take a 5-1 lead before the Lady Cats came right back to put six on the board in the top of the second to go ahead 7-5. Both teams put one more up in the next three innings as defense seemed to take over the game, and at the end of five the score stood at 8-6.
In the bottom of the sixth however, the Eagles lit up the board for four to take a 10-8 lead before the Lady Cats bats came to life to pound out seven runs in their final at bat. The score than stood at 15-10. Magnolia put on a valient comeback scoring three in the bottom of the inning but it wasn’t enough and Paden City took home the victory.
