Arkadelphia beats Glen Rose 11-1

March 25, 2011

The Beavers dropped to 6-4 on the season Friday after losing 11-1 to Arkadelphia.

Glen Rose's lone run came in the second inning when sophomore Ethan Beard came home off a sacrifice fly. He had reached base on a single and stolen second base.

Glen Rose head coach Chase Meyers said, "We just couldn't put hits together, and we left a lot of runners stranded.

"I think we left people stranded just about every inning."
He said, "And, when we did get some people on base, they'd make a couple of good plays to retire the side."

The Bryant Lady Hornets won two games Thursday in a tournament being held in Clarksville, Tenn.

Bryant head coach Debbie Clark said the trip was a bit of a hassle, trying to leave on a bus that wouldn’t start and eventually landing themselves in bumper-to-bumper traffic 100 miles outside of Nashville, which required a police escort for the Lady Hornets.

“It’s already been quite a trip,” she said.

However, the team arrived focused and ready to play, winning 6-3 against tournament host Clarksville High School and 15-1 against Clarskville Northwest.
