ENID, Okla. —
Pacers head coach Marsha Cusack didn’t sound like a losing coach following Enid’s 3-1 loss to 6A-4 power Broken Arrow in district softball action at Pacer Field Thursday.
The Pacers had a 1-0 lead until the fourth when the Lady Tigers scored all three of their runs. Ally Lewis allowed only six hits, while striking out three and walking two.
Enid (13-17, 4-9) left runners on in every inning. Haven Bay, Olivia Andrews and Lewis had the Pacers’ three hits. The Pacers lost to Broken Arrow 10-0 last month.
“It was a loss, but it was a good loss, if there is such a thing,’’ Cusack said. “The kids battled. We held our composure after they got those three runs. We came back at them, we just couldn’t get runners in. I’m really proud of how far these kids have come.’’
Both teams, Cusack said, played excellent defense.
“We hit some deep balls that some other teams wouldn’t have caught up with, but they did,’’ Cusack said. “It was a great game to watch. There were a lot of sliding, one-knee catches and outfielders running back and getting to balls hit deep.’’
The Pacers go to Sapulpa Monday.
complete their district season at Sapulpa Monday. They host Woodward Tuesday before going to El Reno Thursday.
