Splendora vs Shepherd Round 1
March 8, 2014By Nate Perrone of Splendora High School
The Splendora Lady Cats saw Brooke Millican pitch eight strong innings while striking out 10 to carry the Lady Cats over the finish line with a 2-1 win over Shepherd under the Friday Night Lights of spring.
The top of the third saw Splendora take an early lead, 1-0. The spark came in the form of a Natalie "Noot" McComber single, before a Tiffany Hinkelman double, bringing home Noot who finished 3 for 4 from the dish.
Arcelia Andrade put the Lady Cats back in the lead for good in the eighth inning. With the score tied at one, she brought home Ashley Prince for the go ahead run that proved to be the winner.
Splendora will be defending home turf this Tuesday against the Longhorns of Tarkington. Come enjoy part of the Spring Break holiday at the friendly venue of LadyCat Field.
