For the second game in a row, the Waldron Lady Bulldogs have lost by one point. “A loss always hurts,” says Head Coach Bailey Moore. “I lose sleep over a 1 point loss nearly as bad as a 10 point loss. Having a game in your hands and letting it slip through is a rough way to go.” The girls fell to the Ozark Lady Hillbillies 7-6. The Lady Bulldogs are now 11-7 on the season.
By the fifth inning, the score was tied 4-4. In inning six, Waldron pulled ahead with a score of 6-5. But by the unlucky hand of fate, Ozark added two runs in the seventh inning sealing the deal for the Lady Bulldogs. Mackinzie Callahan finished the game with one run, two hits, two runners batted in, and four putouts.
Rheagan Sanford earned one hit, one run, one steal, two putouts, and two assists. Bayleigh Lipham snagged one run, one RBI, and six putouts. Saige Mahar nailed two runs, two hits, three putouts, and three assists. Whitney Richmond scored one hit, one RBI, one putout, and one assist. Taylor Stacy landed one run, one hit, two RBI, one steal, two putouts, and one assist. Jayden Manning obtained two putouts and two assists. And pitcher Ashton Young threw out 117 pitches to 35 batters striking out three. She also bagged one hit and one assist.
“We are staying positive and taking it one game at a time. These girls have heart and I have faith that they will dig deep to finish this season out strong!” The Waldron Lady Bulldogs will stay home tonight and take on the 1-11 Cedarville Lady Pirates at 4:30 p.m. As an added bonus, the Lady Bulldogs will be celebrating senior night.
