WOODLAWN -- The Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals got a taste of its own medicine in the semifinals of the Woodlawn Tournament on Saturday after being held hitless. With Kristen Dempsey and LJ Hemlich usually being the ones to hold the opposition off the base paths, the Lady Cardinals couldnâ€™t muster a hit but still beat Woodlawn 1-0 taking advantage of a walk and wild pitch in the process and advancing to the finals.
SHERIDAN â€“ Just like their last game against Sheridan, the Benton Panthers got down early against the Yellowjackets on Friday night. But just like the last game, a 6-2 win over the Sheridan, the Panthers again came back and took a 7-2 win on Friday to take sole possession of second place in the 7A/6A South. Both teams were 7-2 in the South going into Fridayâ€™s contest as the Panthers improve to 8-2, a game behind the Bryant Hornets.
