The Ennis Lady Lions didn’t hit one ball past the infield Thursday night, losing to the Lovejoy Lady Leopards 9-2 and find themselves playing tonight for their playoff lives.
Senior pitcher Taylor Maliska managed four strikeouts in six innings before Coach Rodney McNeill pulled her to let Kayla Prachyl finish the game.
“They outplayed us,” McNeill said. “I don’t think we came in ready to go, and they did. They made things happen. Instead of setting the tone, we tried to respond to the tone they set. That’s never a good plan. When you go at it from that approach, you go from bad to worse.”
