Lady Eagles win big
Last Tuesday the WFFA Lady Eagles opened district play with a 17-12 win against Grand Prairie Advantage.
“This was by far the most stressful and exciting game that we have ever played. I fully believe that my girls’ character pushed us over the top to win that game. It was a must win for us and we were so down and deflated that I wasn’t sure if we could come back. I pulled the girls together and told them to have some fun and play their game and a little prayer couldn’t hurt,” coach Shanna Kendrick said.
Grand Prairie led 2-1 after one, 4-3 after two and 5-3 after three before WFFA tied it at five in the fourth.
The tie was short lived as Grand Prairie scored one in the fourth before tacking on four in the fifth to take a 10-5 into the sixth.
WFFA laid down bunts, stole bases and made Grand Prairie errors prove costly in the sixth to rally for seven runs and take a 12-10 lead into the seventh as WFFA pitcher Lizette Sweeney held Grand Prairie in check in the bottom of the sixth.
With three singles, a double and two triples in the seventh the Lady Eagles added five runs before Grand Prairie threatened in the bottom half of the inning.
Grand Prairie scored two runs and had a chance for more but Bailey Young made a great play at third to end the game.
Sweeney struck out seven while recording two doubles, three RBI and four stolen bases on offense. Taylor Townsel singled, doubled twice and stolen five bases while Tori Vroman singled three times and stole seven bases.
Kaylee Cornuaud singled and stolen four bases while Young singled, doubles and stole five bases. Jenny Payne singled and stole two bases. The Lady Eagles play again Friday.
