Lady Rebels still in the hunt after softball split
by By Randy Bruce
KONAWA - Coach Mike McDonald’s un-ranked and under-appreciated Lady Rebels split their regional fast-pitch games on Thursday, staying alive for one more day in the chase for State.
Silo lost to No. 8 Cyril-Cement 12-2 but bounced back with a 5-4 win over the 15th-ranked host Konawa team.
Karissa Marshall had an RBI triple in the first inning against the Lady Pirates and led 2-1 after one inning. But Cyril-Cement responded with three runs in the second and never looked back.
Mary Grider pitched both games and is likely to see action today in a noon re-match against the Lady Pirates, also in Konawa.
“I’m glad we’re coming off a win, that’s important,” McDonald said. “We challenged (Konawa) about halfway through the game. It seemed like both teams didn’t want to win. We turned that around and we were able to get a few base hits to control the flow of the game.”
Miranda Parr’s seventh inning hit scored Adyson Barber for the walk-off win. “She struggled all day, so it was a nice way for her to finish,” McDonald said.
Another Bryan County softball team in this bracket, the Tushka Lady Tigers, notched a pair of 3-2 victories on Thursday over Konawa and Cyril-Cement in successive order. They will await the winner of today’s early game between the Lady Rebels and Lady Pirates for a 2 p.m. regional championship in Konawa.
