On the road again, the lady Eagles found them in a familiar situation in Cedarville last week.
They outhit their opponents 13-6, but with the game tied in the bottom of the seventh inning, the last of their nine errors on the evening allowed the winning run to score.
It has been a difficult first half of the season for the Lady Eagles, seeing games slip away late.
Macey Hurt went three for four at the plate, netting three RBIs in the loss, while Olivia Henderson added two RBIs of her own.
Friday they traveled to Charleston, and held the lead till late when Charleston put together a couple of timely hits to tie the game up and send it to extra innings, a situation which places a runner on second base to start the inning. The Lady Eagles were able to advance their runner to third, but she was stranded there. In the bottom of the eighth, Charleston advanced the runner and then a clutch base hit ended yet another close game for the Lady Eagles.
They would have to turn around quickly for tournament play in Magazine a day later.
In the opening game, the Lady Eagles faced Lavaca. Again, it would be a close affair, however, this one would go differently.
The Lady Eagles put up a run in the top of the first inning as Sydney Ward doubled in a run to start a strong performance for her. From there, Ward would take the mound and strike out seven while not allowing a run.
The Lady Eagles took the 1-0 win into an afternoon game against Booneville. Ward again started out putting hers on the board, but in the second and third innings, Booneville would put up four runs each time and take the 8-0 game in four innings. The Lady Eagles end the week with some tough losses, often coming up a fielding error or timely hit away from the win column.
You can see them in one of their few home games on Friday when they host Ozark at 4:30 p.m.
