Lady Indians down rival Byers
The Byhalia Lady Indians softball team faced H.W. Byers on Tuesday, September 28, at Byers’ home field.
The Lady Indians started the game off well, scoring five runs in the first inning, thanks to a double by Chasidy Kizer and a triple by Crystal Rayford.
The Lady Lions responded with one run in the first.
Byers held the Lady Indians to no runs in the top of the second, and the Lady Lions were able to score five runs in the bottom, giving them the lead, 6-5.
The third inning was scoreless, but Byhalia grabbed the lead for good in the fourth with the help of a three-run homer by Brandy Howard.
The Lady Lions were unable to score in the fifth or sixth innings so Byhalia’s lead was 8-6.
The sixth inning was all Byhalia. It started off with a single by Teri Kimbrough. The Lady Indians continued to tack on runs, and Chasidy Kizer helped by hitting a three-run homer.
Still not finished building the lead, the Lady Indians continued hitting well, and Jasmine Humphreys was the next to come through with a big home run.
The Lady Lions were scoreless in the bottom of the sixth.
The game was then called with the final score Byhalia 17, H.W. Byers 6.
Chasidy Kizer was the winning pitcher.
“We started off slowly, but we had a big sixth inning,” said Byhalia coach Summer Pannell. “Byers’ team has shown some improvement and so has our team.
“Hopefully everyone will stick with it and build the softball programs in Marshall County up so we can all be competitive.”
The Lady Indians hosted Hickory Flat Tuesday. They will play at North Pontotoc Thursday.
