SHELLEY â€” On a near picture perfect day the Shelley Lady Russets welcome the Snake River Lady Panthers to town for an afternoon of softball. For the Lady Russets, it was their first outing of the year while the Lady Panthers entered the game with a 3-3 record thus far on the young season.
By days end, it was the Lady Panthers who emerged victorious as they pounded out 16 hits in a 14-7 win.
"It was a good day. It was beautiful weather and the girls came out and hit the ball," Snake River head coach Kay Martin said. "We never were really in control of the game though until that big inning."
Indeed the game was a tug of war over the first five innings of play with Snake River taking a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning and the Lady Russet regaining the lead at 4-2 with a three run home half of the fourth inning.
