Homers power Kiwanis to playoff victory

Lady Horns advance in winner’s bracket
In Thursday’s freshman division playoff opener, the Kiwanis Lady Horns brought some powerful swings to the plate and gave their fans plenty of reason to cheer.
No. 3 seed Kiwanis hit four inside-the-park homers on its way to a 13-7 victory over the No. 2 seed Leggett & Platt Cobras. Kiwanis finished with more hits (6-3) and fewer errors (3-4).
“Every single game we’ve played against [Leggett & Platt] has been pretty close and it basically just depends on who is on that night,” said Kiwanis coach Lance Honza after his team actually trailed until a breakout third inning in Thursday’s game. “Our girls were just awesome. This is definitely the best we have hit the ball all season and the girls went above and beyond what they usually do.”
Leggett & Platt coach Arthur Carrillo credited the opposition after the contest.
“This was a good ballgame; Kiwanis just hit the ball hard to score a lot of runs,” Carrillo said. “Some errors hurt us, but the girls kept playing hard until the end. We’re pretty evenly matched with Kiwanis, so I knew this would be a tough game.”
