Marked Tree (12-13) had trouble with the rain and a good McCrory team as a 10 run second inning from the Lady Jaguars spelled doom for the Lady Indians as they fell 14-1 last Thursday in the regional tournament in Lepanto ending their season.

Ally Byers led off for the Lady Indians with a single and went to third when the ball got pas the outfielder. Brittany Pharis reached on a fielder's choice as Byers was tagged out in a rundown for the first out. Harley Daniels doubled putting runners on second and third only to see Pharis get thrown out at the plate trying to score on a passed ball. Cameron Willoughby and Sydney Rotscheid both walked to load bases before Katherine Hobbs' fielder's choice grounder forced Willoughby out at third base for the third out. McCrory plated three runs in the bottom of the first inning to take an early 3-0 lead. The Lady Indians went three up and three down as Savannah Swink struck out looking, Alana Williams grounded out and Naysha Moore looked at strike three to keep the score 2-0 Lady Jaguars. McCrory took advantage of four walks, one hit batter and two Marked Tree errors to score 10 runs in the rain to go up 13-0 at the end of two innings of play.
