In a correction from last Friday’s game against Lafayette, Brewer had 10 strikeouts and walked five batters.

Cleveland was glad for the relief pitching of Walt Love in the top of the fourth quarter because with Brewer on the mound, all three innings it was three up and three down for East Side.

Not that Love was slacking in the one inning he pitched. He struck out two batters and walked three. It was still 14-0 going into the top of the fifth inning.

Ryan Willis took over the pitching duties for the Tigers. Unfortunately for Willis, Cleveland scored three runs in the top of the fifth to avoid a shutout.

The Tigers scored nine runs in the bottom of the first inning to take a 9-0 lead.

The Tigers scored the other five runs in the bottom of the third quarter, but could not get that 15th run in to end the game at that point.

Lady Tigers Fall to OB in Season Opener

The South Panola Lady Tiger fastpitch softball team finally opened the regular and district season on the road at Olive Branch, Tuesday, March 4.

However, opening day was not too kind to the Lady Tigers. South Panola (0-1 overall, 0-1 district) fell 15-5 to the Lady Conquistadors, but Lady Tiger head coach Kim Wilson said the score did not reflect the game was a whole.

"We were neck and neck in the first three innings of the game," Wilson said. "Some back-to-back bad defensive innings allowed them to mount up some unearned runs."

The game was tied 3-3 at the bottom of the third. Then some defensive errors allowed Olive Branch eight runs in the bottom of the third for an 11-3 lead.
