Tigers’ season ends at semi-state

Jasper — Sometimes things just don’t go your way.

Unfortunately for the Lebanon Tigers’ softball team, Monday afternoon’s semi-state game against Boonville was one of those times.

The Tigers allowed four unearned runs and couldn’t get much going at the plate in a 4-1 season-ending loss.

“They made some great plays and in games previous some of those balls drop in, but they caught them all. They did a good job.

“In a game like this you need the ball to bounce your way once in a while and it didn’t. But we are walking away with our heads held high.”

Lebanon got off to a great start.

After a 1-2-3 inning from Ashlyn Montgomery in the top of the first, Montgomery got the Tiger bats going with a lead-off double to left-center.

Three batters later, Lexy Britt drove her in when her hot shot went through the Boonville shortstop’s legs for an error.

But after that, Lebanon had just five hits and two runners reach second base.

“We needed to get a couple of hard hits back-to-back to pick the girls up,” Smith said. “Boonville had a good pitcher, but we should have been able to hit better than that. We have been streaky like that, and that has been one of our weaknesses offensively — sometimes the bats go quiet for a couple of innings.”
