Splendora vs Coldspring Round 2
April 3, 2014By Nate Perrone of Splendora High School
The Splendora LadyCats hosted the Lady Trojans on two seperate nights to secure the win in a district game that was suspended due to weather.
Coldspring jumped out to an early 2-0 lead that stood until the bottom of the 5th inning. The bats came alive for the Lady Cats in a powerful rally. Ashley "AP" Prince started it off with a 2 out double, followed by a single to right field by Ashley "Crash" Davis that scored the speedy AP. Not to be left out of the fun Madison "Hoss" Prince made the rally a family affair by striking a double of her own to left field that scored Crash. Also eager to get in on the action Tiffany Hinkelman stepped into the box and sent a long fly ball to left field for another double & scored Hoss. The rally put the Lady Cats up 3-2 going into the 6th inning.
The lead proved to be all that Brooke Millican needed to finish off Coldspring. When the game resumed the Lady Trojans batted in the top of the 7th sending up the #9, #1 & #2 hitters to attempt to take back the lead. Millican struck out looking 3 & of the next 4 batters she faced, finishing with 10 K's on the night.
The Lady Cats will next play host to Shpeherd in the final stretch of the regular district season.
