The Lady Cougars defeated the Ebarb Lady Rebels in semi-final action yesterday at Frasch Park in Sulphur, LA.
In the top of the first, the Lady Cougars let jittery nerves get the best of them and the Lady Rebels scored two runs on a couple of errors. That was the only time in the game the Lady Cougars would trail.
In the bottom of the first Trawick drew a lead-off walk and Carter singled to right field, both scored on a Camp single trying the Lady Rebels 2-2. Bevill and Martin both singled putting the Lady Cougars up 5-2 after one complete inning of play.
Barnes singled in the second and scored on hits by Camp and Bevill. The Lady Cougars were up 6-4 after two innings of play.
That score was too close for comfort. The Lady Cougars didn’t score again until the fifth inning. The Lady Cougars loaded and cleared the bases twice in the fifth with base clearing doubles by Abels and Carter putting the Lady Cougars up 12-4.
They sealed the deal in the sixth inning running the Lady Rebels with singles by Bevill and Barber and a bunt by Martin. The final score was 14-4.
The Lady Cougars will take on the Georgetown Lady Bulldogs in the Class C Final Championship game on Saturday at 11:00 AM. The game will be held at Frasch Park in Sulphur, LA on field 10.
The Lady Cougars hope you will make the drive to Sulphur to watch them as they fight for a state championship.
