HASKELL â€“ The Harmony Grove Lady Cardinalsâ€™ softball team continued their winning ways following spring break on Monday and Tuesday. On Monday, the Lady Cardinals opened up their conference season with a rout over Glen Rose, 10-3. Tuesday was a litter tougher when Harmony Grove met up against Perryville for a 1-0 win at home.
NORTH LITTLE ROCK â€“ The Bauxite Lady Miners were up 7-1 going into the bottom of the sixth inning, but errors and missed opportunities led to an 8-7 extra-inning loss to the Robinson Lady Senators on Monday at Burns Park in North Little Rock to start 7-4A conference play.
â€śYou probably canâ€™t print what I have to say,â€ť Bauxite Coach Wes Mode said wryly. â€śIt was Glen Rose all over again. We just canâ€™t finish. We canâ€™t deal with success, and yet we canâ€™t handle adversity either. Itâ€™s kind of strange.â€ť
GLEN ROSE - The Harmony Grove Cardinalsâ€™ season has been everything but good so far this year. Coming off of a spring break road trip where they went 1-3 did not help the matter much either. With the conference season starting back up, the Cardinals had a lot on their plate as they headed in to Glen Rose to face one of the top teams in 3A this season.
With the odds stacked against them, the Cardinals played arguably the best game of the year as they used a strong offensive attack with an almost flawless defense to down the Beavers 5-2, picking up their first conference win of the season.
