HUTTO, Texas -- The College Station Lady Cougar softball team won the opener of their best of three series with Lorena on Thursday, but couldn't manage a win on Friday. Their season comes to an abrupt end following a 13-0 and 4-3 loss to the Leopards in the UIL State Softball Playoffs.
Lorena evened the series at one game a piece thanks to a 13-0 win in game two forcing a 'winner take all' game 3three. The Leopards broke the scoreless tie in the decider with a run in the 4th and another in the 5th. They will add 2 more in the 6th for a 4-0 lead.
College Station would not go quietly. Paige Isbell hit a two run home run in the 6th to cut Lorena's lead in half at 2-0. The Lady Cougars will add another run in the 7th, but their rally falls short as Lorena advances to the second round following the 4-3 win. The Leopards clinch the best of three series two games to one.
