Lady Panthers end season in playoffs vs. Magee

By TAYLOR HAWKINS,

Yazoo County’s Lady Panthers saw their season come to a conclusion on Thursday night when they fell for the second straight time to Magee 16-4 in the second round of the playoffs.

According to Yazoo County head coach Grant Andrews, the difference between the teams was offensive prowess.

But despite the losses, it was a historic year for his Lady Panthers.

“We played hard and gave ourselves a chance to win, but Magee just outhit us at the plate,” Andrews said. “That was the difference in both games. We reached new heights in our program this year by reaching the second round.”

In the first inning, the Lady Trojans pieced together two runs to take an early 2-0 lead.

Magee added three more runs to their lead in the second inning to push the score up to 5-0.

The Lady Panthers fought back hard in the third inning, putting together enough plays to score two runs, cutting Magee’s lead to 5-2.

But the Lady Trojans countered with a big five run inning to push their lead up to 10-2.

Andrews’ squad would not quit, however, no matter how perilous the situation was.

They put hit-after-hit together to score two more runs to cut the lead back down to 10-4.

Once again, the Lady Trojans struck back with six more runs to extend their lead to 16-4 to end both the game and Yazoo County’s season.

This was the first time that the Lady Panthers advanced to the second round in their history.

The Lady Panthers finished the season with a 15-6 overall record
