Lady Panther softball still on the road

by | Apr 14, 2022 | Sports

The Princeton Lady Panthers (1-8 district) played their third game in a row on the road and fell behind early against a powerful Denison offense. 

The Lady Yellowjackets dominated the game and defeated Princeton by the score of 16-0.  Denison scored three runs in the first inning and never looked back.  The Denison hurler went four innings, allowing two hits and zero runs while striking out seven batters.

A single by Brittni Askew in the second inning was one of the few positives for the Lady Panthers on the evening.  Askew took the loss as the pitcher for Princeton.  She lasted three innings, allowing 16 hits and 16 runs while walking one.

Destiney Madewell and Askew each collected one hit to lead the Lady Panthers.

The Lady Panthers, who haven’t played a home game since March 25th, remained on the road Friday night, travelling to face the Lovejoy Lady Leopards.  Princeton watched the game slip away early and couldn’t recover in a 9-3 loss.

The Lady Panthers struggled to put runs on the board, although they did hit the ball quite well during the game.  Princeton also had a tough time defensively containing Lovejoy.  The Lady Leopards scored 5 of their 9 total runs in the fifth inning. 

The offensive onslaught by Lovejoy was led by six different players gaining multiple hits.  Lovejoy finished the game with 14 total hits.  The Lady Leopard pitcher went 5 innings, allowing six hits and 3 runs while striking out nine Princeton batters.

Hallie Day took the loss for the Lady Panthers.  The righthander went five innings, allowing nine runs on 13 hits while striking out three batters. 

Offensively, Day smacked a homer for Princeton in the fifth inning.  Laney Truitt, Destiney Madewell, Jadyn Walton, Emily Autrey, Day, and Kaitlyn Vann each collected one hit for the Lady Panthers. 

The Lady Panthers fell to 1-9 in district action but finally return home to play a game on their home field.

Princeton will face The Colony Lady Cougars on Tuesday before heading back on the road to play Wylie East on Thursday, the game being moved up from its normal Friday time slot due to the Good Friday holiday.
