The Ennis Lady Lions and Lovejoy Leopards faced each other Friday night in the first game of the Region II quarterfinals. Both teams put up a defensive battle that wasn’t decided until the end of the seventh inning. Despite outhitting the Leopards by a two to one margin, the Lions fell to Lovejoy 2-1.
“In a game like this, you just have to come up with big hits. They’re the one who got the big hit first right there in the seventh inning,” Lion coach Rodney McNeill said.
