The Miners got some sweet revenge Tuesday, and did it in true dramatic fashion.
Bauxite beat former conference foe Jessieville 16-15 on two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning by sophomore Chris Revas.
The Miners (9-5, 1-0), the defending 3A State Champions who have since moved up to 4A, lost twice to Jessieville last year. Bauxite only lost five games on their way to capturing the title.
Bauxite head coach Michael Mattox said, âNext to the state championship game, that was probably the best game Iâve ever coached.
Although the Sheridan Lady Yellowjackets trailed for most of the game, they were able to rally in the fifth inning to take a one-run lead and eventually defeat El Dorado 6-3 Tuesday night.
Sheridan scored a run in the third, three in the fifth and two in the seventh while El Dorado scored a run in the first, a run in the second and a run in the third.
Sheridanâs two runs in the seventh inning gave the Lady âJackets a three-run lead.
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, âWe had two opportunities to end the game on a run rule and didnât, and, of course, they came back as always.â
Lem said the game was a âhard fought slugfest, just like it is every time. Thereâs just something between our two porgrams I guess.â
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 âshell-shockedâ 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.
