Cathedral softball falls to McComb
MCCOMB — The Cathedral Lady Green Wave had more than their share of scoring opportunities during their game Friday night at McComb. The problem was they couldn’t come up with the timely hits.
Cathedral ended up leaving eight runners on base and two untimely errors early in the ball game by its defense helped the McComb Lady Tigers come away with a 3-2 win over the Lady Green Wave.
“Even though we had nine hits, we weren’t getting them at the right time,” Cathedral head coach Gary Blackwell said. “We had a couple of errors at crucial times that would’ve got us out of an inning twice.”
Blackwell added that four times during the game the Lady Green Wave had a runner on second base and that any one of those base runners would have scored had they been able to put the ball in play.
McComb scored one run each in the bottom of the first and second innings to jump out to a 2-0 lead. Cathedral responded with two runs in the top of the third inning to tie the game up, only to see the Lady Tigers score not only their last run of the game in the bottom of the third, but the last run for either team.
“It was a battle the whole way. Those two errors were the turning points in the ball game,” Blackwell said.
Ginny Daggett went 2-for-4 with a double and Mollie Devening was 2-for-3 with a double to lead the Lady Green Wave at the plate.
Cathedral (4-2) hosts Bogue Chitto at 4 p.m. next Thursday.
