Lady Cards lose district games
The Potts Camp Lady Cardinals traveled to Calhoun City Monday, March 26, to play their second division game of the season.
This would be the very first time the Lady Cardinals and the Lady Wildcats faced each other. The Lady Cardinals were excited and ready to go, hoping to take home the victory. However, this was not going to be the Lady Cardinals’ night.
Nothing the Lady Cardinals seemed to do was going in their favor. They could not get it going in the batter’s box, and then when they took the field it was much the same thing.
Kayla Yarbrough took the mound, but with an injury to the shoulder, she was unable to pitch to her potential.
Calhoun City won the game 14-0.
The junior varsity Lady Cardinals also took the field on the same night. They tried their best to get the offensive attack cranked up, but had no luck.
Megan Watkins was the pitcher. She ended the game with three strikeouts.
Calhoun City took a 10-0 victory.
Potts Camp played its second division game of the week Thursday. The Lady Cardinals were hosting Bruce.
With big expectations after Monday’s loss, the Lady Cardinals were ready to take on the Lady Trojans. Because of Yarbrough’s injury to her pitching shoulder, she was unable to take control of the mound. This left several of the Lady Cardinals playing different positions.
Pitching for the Lady Cardinals was Watkins with Taylor Childress behind the plate.
The Lady Trojans started the first inning off with a four-run lead. When the Lady Cardinals came up to bat it seemed as though it was a repeat of the night before. The Lady Cardinals struggled from the plate. The game went three innings with the Lady Cardinals falling 17-0.
Next the junior varsity Lady Cardinals took their turn with the Lady Trojans. Kayla Brown was the pitcher for the first two innings with Watkins behind the plate. Anna Summerlin finished the game off.
The Lady Cardinals could not get the game going in their favor. Bruce won 11-0.
Brown had two strikeouts.
The Lady Cardinals are hoping this week will find them in a winning zone. Potts Camp was slated to take on Calhoun City Monday and Byhalia Tuesday. They close out the week Saturday, April 7, when they face New Site at home at 1 p.m.
