LINDALE — The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats took an early lead, but saw North Lamar score four runs in the final three frames to take a 4-3 win Thursday.
The game was played as first round action in the Lindale Tournament. The Lady Cats were also supposed to take on Harmony, but that game was cancelled.
Against the Pantherettes, Sulphur Springs managed just five hits at the dish. Delaney England of North Lamar pitched a complete game, allowing three runs off five hits, walking one and striking out one. She threw 89 pitches, 53 for strikes.
Losing pitcher for Sulphur Springs was Katie Sapaugh. Sapaugh also had a complete game in the circle Thursday. She faced 24 batters giving up four runs, all earned, from six hits, walking two and striking out two. Sapaugh threw 71 pitches, 47 strikes in six innings.
Hailey Dixon knocked in two runs with one hit. Meagan McCullough scored twice. Makayla Glosson knocked in a run. Sarah Womack, Toni Cody, Maci McGlamery and Kiara Johnson had singles.
The Lady Cats were scheduled today to face Mabank at 10:50 a.m. and Lindale at 2:30 p.m.
“We did not hit the ball well. Defensively we played well. Katie Sapaugh pitched a good game for us,” said David Carrillo, Sulphur Springs head softball coach. “Offensively, we are just not consistent right now. We need to come out more focused and aggressive at the plate.”
The Lady Cats are 8-8 for the year having lost four of their last five games.
In the recent McKinney tournament they were shutout twice and lost 5-2 against Red Oak. The team regrouped to win a non-tournament game 15-2 against Princeton on Tuesday.
The Lady Cats continue in the Lindale Tournament through Saturday. They are slated to meet Central Heights at 1:30 p.m. in the third round Saturday.
