RIVERSIDE â€” The game was much more winnable than the final 13-5 score indicated on Tuesday evening as the Snake River Lady Panthers dropped their first game of the season in the eight run, extra inning defeat at the hands of a tough Teton squad.
"We should have won this game," Snake River head coach Kay Martin said. "We get ahead in the sixth inning and then just didn't make the plays that we needed to make to get the job done. When the pressure was on, we just didn't make the plays when we needed them."
