Panthers to face Pine Bluff Friday

April 14, 2011

For Friday’s game against Pine Bluff, the goal is simple: Don’t underestimate the Zebras.
Coach Mark Balisterri said that Wednesday, even though the Panthers beat them 10-0 earlier this season.
“If we go out there and play our game and don’t let them hang around, then we should be good,” Balisterri said. “My main concerned is being focused for the game.
“Pine Bluff is Pine Bluff, and they have been beating people for years. Even when they are down, they always beat people they aren’t supposed to beat.”
Point and case is Pine Bluff’s 6-3 win over El Dorado Tuesday night.

Baptist no-hits Lady Cardinals

April 13, 2011

HASKELL — All season, Harmony Grove head coach Sammi Massey has been preaching the importance of not waiting until the third or fourth inning of games to start playing. But for whatever reason, it just hasn’t quite sunk in.
However, up until Tuesday it hasn’t been a problem as the Lady Cardinals are notorious for scoring an average of seven or more runs in those middle innings. Against Arkansas Baptist, it would not matter though as the Lady Cardinals had no answer for Lady Eagles pitcher Erin Woods, who threw a no-hitter and led Baptist to a 7-0 win at Haskell.
