The JV girls finished district at 9-1-2 and were 15-5-2 overall for a good season.
The Beeville girls lost a one-run decision earlier in the year as their rally was cut short by the time limit.
“This was truly a clash of the Trojans, in which the ladies battled it out and were able to come out victorious,” said JV coach Ophelia De Los Santos.
On Friday, the game went five innings and the Lady Trojans came out on top with a run in the top of the fifth to capture the 4-3 victory.
Moody scored first with a run in the bottom of the first off Beeville starter Theresa Amador. The Lady Trojans answered to tie the tilt at 1-1 with a second-inning rally.
Moody wasn’t going quietly though, as they pushed across two more runs in the third to regain the lead at 3-1 over the Beeville girls.
The time limit was approaching so the Beeville squad got busy. A two-run fourth tied the game again and then the Lady Trojans got the winning run in the top of the fifth. Amador closed the door on Moody in the bottom of the fifth to preserve the win. Amador went the distance, striking out nine Moody batters.
Anissa Cantu and Patsy Longoria each had two hits for the Lady Trojans. Celeste Contreras, Amador, Kymberly Wolfe and Krystal Cuellar also came up with hits for Beeville.
Longoria contributed two RBI’s and Wolfe knocked in one run against Moody.
“This was a very charismatic squad which was willing to do whatever it took to get the job done,” De Los Santos said.
