The Lady Eagles bid for a state championship ended Saturday at the hands of the Kingsville Academy Lady Pride, 11-2.

The game was schedule to be played at a neutral site - Tuloso Midway High School but morning thunder showers quickly erased the plan.

Coach Jaime Cano said their scramble to find a game field ended in a coin flip for a home or home one game playoff. The Lady Eagles lost the flip and the game ended up on the campus of Texas A&M Kingsville.

Kingsville Academy struck first on the top half of the inning on a ball hit over the right fielders head and errant throw to third. With a runner on third, the next batter hit a base hit to left to score the first run of the game.

The Lady Eagles came right back and scored a run of their own when Chelsea Bluemel made it to third base on an error on a thrown ball to first by the third baseman. Mallory Jessop would come up to bat and hit a sacrifice RBI.

The Lady Pride would score two runs in the third inning on a fielders choice and two consecutive errors by the Lady Eagles, making the score 3-1.

The lady Eagles would not score again until the bottom of the seventh.

“By then the damage had been done and the Lady Eagles’ hope for a playoff win were well out of reach,” said Coach Jaime Cano.

In the seventh inning Melissa Cisneros reached base on a walk. Hannah Carmichael who had already hit two doubles in the game, hit a sacrifice to move pinch runner Ashley Barrraza over to second.

Malorie Nesloney hit an RBI single to score Barraza from second. The Lady Eagles would not score any more to the end the game.

The Lady Eagles gave up 11 runs on nine hits and had an unbelievable 14 errors in the game.

Chelsea Bluemel 1-3, 1R, Mallory Jessop 1-2, 1RBI, Hannah Carmichael, 2-2, Malorie Nesloney, 1-2,1RBI.

The Lady Eagles end their season with a record of 16 wins 13 losses and 1 tie.
