Lady Jackrabbit Softball Advances to 2nd Round – Big Rematch Looms
The Lady Jackrabbits have several hashtags they use on social media this year. They are fairly obvious in meaning. The hashtags, #team, #compete, #playforem and #finishwhatwestarted will give an outsider the only look they need into the makeup of this team. I have said it before, and it remains true, these ladies and their coaches are on a mission.
Round 1 of the playoffs was a one game series against Texas High. It took a while for the Forney bats to come alive, but when you have a pitcher like Savannah DesRochers in the circle, you can afford that early in the playoffs. DesRochers struckout only 6 over 5 innings of work, but only walked 1 and gave up 2 hits. The Jackrabbit Offense ended the game early via the mercy rule. The final score was 12-0, after 5 innings. Forney jumped out to an early lead with 1 run in the first and another in the second. The bats then went quiet in the third and fourth before exploding in the fifth for 10 runs. Texas High opened the door for the massive inning with an error and the Lady Jackrabbits pounced. The inning was a full team effort as hits and runs were spread out up and down the lineup. Texas committed 5 errors in the game, squashing any hope they had of a huge upset.
