The Ennis Lady Lions (26-2, 13-0 in district) fought a bitter, physical battle with the Mansfield Legacy Lady Broncos (23-6, 11-2 in district) on Friday night, eventually coming out on top 5-4 to clinch the district championship.
Coach Rodney McNeill said his girls proved in front of a packed to capacity field full of fans what his team can do under pressure.
“It reiterates what we’re capable of,” McNeill said after the game. “It’s one of the goals we had for the year to win district and get that first place spot going into playoffs. It’s a good night for Ennis softball.”
