The game would decide which team would represent District 30-2A in the final postseason spot available. The Lady Cats powered their way to a 13-8 victory and a date with the Industrial Lady Cobras in the bi-district round of the playoffs.

In Saturday’s contest the Lady Cats broke open a close game with an offensive explosion in their half of the sixth inning. It was a 5-2 contest heading into the sixth with the S-T girls holding the slim, three-run lead.
“We had a big offensive inning in the sixth but then they followed with a big inning in the bottom of the inning,” said head coach Gary Epps.
The Lady Cats scratched their way to eight big runs in the frame to jump out to a 13-2 advantage heading into the bottom of the sixth.
The Greyhounds barked loudly in the sixth with six runs of their own but just made it 13-8 in favor of the S-T girls with one inning left to play.
