  • Lady Panthers give up one-run...

    Carroll County was able to overcome two first inning errors and carried a 3-2 lead into the top of the seventh inning. Unfortunately the seventh inning was not kind as an error on the first batter led to four more errors as Boone County scored seven runs to take a 9-3 lead. The Lady Panthers made a little noise in the bottom of the seventh, but Boone held on for a 9-5 victory March 23.

    The first two Boone County batters reached on errors, but Carroll’s defense stiffened behind pitcher Andrea Searcy and only allowed one run.
