The Lady Eagles faced their local rival Scranton in an early week game in front of a capacity crowd. With the crowd gathered at every angle to get a view of the match up, both teams were focused but Paris came away with a 3-2 win.
Scranton scratched out a run early and held that lead in a pitching battle that would last throughout. Paris finally answered and tied it up in the bottom of the fourth when Morgan Johnson knocked in one of her two RBIs. Both teams plated a run in the sixth, so as it headed to the final frame, the game was on the line. Solid defense led the way, and the Lady Eagles batted in the bottom of the seventh with a chance to walk off a winner.
Jadyn Hart got on base, and on a sacrifice bunt to third, made a heads-up play, taking third as the ball had pulled the third basemen to the middle of the infield. Scranton walked the next two batters intentionally to create a force at any base, so Coach Donald Hart countered with a pinch hitter in Chloe Robinson, who immediately slapped a hit to the deep part of the middle infield, where the outfield and infield players were all trying to play in and protect the bases. The ball found a hole anyway and the Lady Eagles walked off a 3-2 winner in what may have been their most entertaining game of the year.
A day later they would travel to Ozark to face a solid Lady Hillbilly team. It was a frustrating night for Paris. Hannah Brewton, Lexy Lee, and Sydney Ward all had multi-hit games, and the Lady Eagles outhit Ozark 10-5 while making no errors. However, the timeliness of the hitting was the key, and Paris dropped one they feel should have been theirs by a score of 4-1, snapping their 13-game winning streak.
Thursday night at Mansfield, they started another streak. KenLeigh Robertson and Morgan Johnson each had three hits, while Jadyn Hart and Chloe Robinson each had a pair of RBIs as the Lady Eagles came from behind in the sixth inning to take the game 6-4. They again outhit their opponent 15-4, but four errors almost cost them the win.
They now change their focus to a new week and a new win streak as they travel to 6A Greenwood early in the week. They hosted Mansfield Tuesday, Charleston on Wednesday, and finish the week against Waldron. At 16-5 on the season, the Lady Eagles have the attention of their community and look to be a force to be reckoned with in the postseason.
