On August 31 the Lions lost to Coal City 8-9, but we still feel they deserve to be recognized! They played hard and fought until the very end with trying to score and come back. The girls had a total of 7 stolen bases. Brynn Christensen had an RBI double in the top of the 7th. Jaci Wilkey also had an RBI in the top of the 7th to score the 8th run and make it a 1-run game. Defensively, Brynn Christensen had 6 strikeouts. Autumn Manzello made a great double play to get the Lions out of a tough inning.
Although they lost the game, they were able to come back from a 4 run lead from Coal City and make it a 1-run game. We are super proud of the girls and their playing. The last regular season game is Friday, September 1at home at 4:30 against Reed Custer ‘A’.
