SP Lady Tigers fall to Hernando in extra inning

By Angie Ledbetter
Nicole Fullilove struck out 14 Hernando Lady Tigers on Tuesday but the South Panola Lady Tigers (9-6) fell 1-0 in the district game.

South Panola had many chances to score as they left nine stranded on base.

Lady Tiger head coach Ashleigh Hicks told the team after the game, “You were on base every inning and Hernando had one inning where they got on base and they were able to score. What’s it going to take for you to realize that when someone gets on base you’ve got to score them?

“This part of the season is when you should be fine-tuned,” she continued. “You made no corrections and no adjustments at all and you still only lost 1-0. I’m not happy with the steal on the one that scored. In my opinion the steal was lazy.”

The game was scoreless until top of the fourth. With two outs, the Hernando catcher singled to left field. While the third baseman was at bat, the courtesy runner stole second. The third baseman hit a triple, driving the runner home for the only run in the game.

South Panola had two errors and two hits. Fullilove and Haley Reid each singled. Hernando had three hits, left six on base and had four errors.

South Panola will be back in action today in the Southaven Tournament. They will take on   Pontotoc at 5:30 p.m. and Brighton at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday South Panola will play Horn Lake at 1:15 p.m. and Arlington, Tenn. at 4:15  p.m.
