Glen Rose and Harmony Grove battled the weather and each other Tuesday in the opening of conference play.
In the end, the Beavers came out on top 10-4, and the Lady Beavers won 15-13.
Glen Rose softball head coach Kyle Lem said, â€śWe had two opportunities to end the game on a run rule and didnâ€™t, and, of course, they came back as always.â€ť
Lem said the game was a â€śhard fought slugfest, just like it is every time. Thereâ€™s just something between our two porgrams I guess.â€ť
Harmony Grove softball head coach Sammi Massey was reached for comment, but did not respond by press time.
BENTON â€” After spending the weekend in Shreveport, La. where the weather was in the mid 90s and sunny, the Benton Lady Panthers were a little â€śshell-shockedâ€ť Tuesday when they had to play in the rain and the mid 50-degree temperatures at the Benton Panther Softball Complex.
Although it took some time for their bats to warm up, the Lady Panthers defeated Texarkana 6-0 thanks in part to a three-run inning in the fifth.
