Lady Farmers lose to Lady Foxes

by | Apr 1, 2021 | Sports

After dominating the first four games of the district slate, the Farmersville soft­ball team returned to action this week hoping to continue its reign of terror.

Forcing the run rule in each of their first four dis­trict games, the Lady Farm­ers were able to assert their will over opponents, scoring double-digit runs while limit­ing the opponents to much of anything of the offensive end.

The Lady Farmers sched­uled competition was short­ened due to bad weather that rained out the softball field. Originally scheduled to host Bishop Lynch March 16 and Caddo Mills the following Friday, both games were un­able to play due to the soaked terrain, with the Bishop Lynch game canceled and the Caddo Mills game postponed until Monday, March 29. When the game was played, the Lady Farmers were unable to win their fifth consecutive district game, losing to the Lady Fox­es 9-8.

Farmersville started off slow against Caddo Mills, giving up six runs through the first two innings to trail 6-1. Falling behind 9-1 enter­ing the bottom of the sixth, Farmersville found life, scor­ing seven runs to cut the Lady Foxes lead to one. It would not be enough, however, as the Lady Farmers failed to score in the seventh inning to lose the first district contest of the year.
