After more than 3 hours on the road and 2 exciting softball games, the Cushing Lady Tigers did not walk away from Thursday's events disappointed. Following a close loss of 6-5 to Broken Bow, the Lady Tigers rallied and managed an even break, taking a lead of 3-2 in their second game of the day against Wagoner.
The team had a strong start but narrowly missed their first mark when they lost the lead and then the first day's game to Broken Bow -who took the win with a game total of 8 hits and 6 runs while Cushing finished up as close to their heels as they could get with 7 hits and 5 runs.
In another nail-biter, the girls swiped their win over Wagoner with one hit each from team members - Taylor Short, Rachel Sherwood, Jenna Hood and Megan Lee.
A special congratulations to Lady Tigers' pitcher, Jolie Boyle, as this week's Viewer's Choice for MVP!
Lady Tiger softball coach, Nikki York, expresses gratitude to both her team and fans just after their win. "Thank you guys so much! Oologah beat Broken Bow 2-1 in 8 innings so we have another shot at Broken Bow (tomorrow) at noon."
