Lady Eagles Fall to #2 Hallettsville
Hallettsville was rated #2 in the state in preseason polls. The Lady Eagles played them very well, until mistakes let the Lady Brahmas off the hook. The score was 2-1 in the fifth inning when a couple of fielding errors allowed runs to score and a missed throw on a steal attempt was followed by another error in backing up and allowed Hallettsville to take a 7-2 lead.
Lexington mounted a rally late in the contest. The Eagles closed to 7-5 with a seventh inning comeback attempt. Haley Jatzlau drove a double to deep centerfield to highlight the inning.
Once again fielding lapses allowed Hallettsville most of their runs. All of the mistakes are correctable with district action just a week and a half away.
