Park View jayvee softball falls to Southampton / May 08, 2019

The Park View jayvee softball team fell short in its comeback attempt and lost a tough one to Southampton High. The game, the last of the season for Park View, was competitive affair but Southampton eked out a 12-7 win thanks to two late runs.

PV scored two runs in the bottom of the first when Breanne Hendrick set the tone with a home run blast to left field scoring C. Sasser. This gave PV a 2-1 lead that they clung to until the top of the third when Southampton scored two runs to take a 3-1 lead.

The Lady Indians added three more in the top of the fourth but Park View answered with three runs of their own to keep the score tight. L. Wells, A. Evans and C. Sasser scored three runs for PV.

Southampton put up three more runs in the top of the fifth, and PV didn’t find an answer in the bottom of the frame so the teams would head into the sixth inning with SHS holding a 9-5 lead.

Southampton would get a single run in the top of the sixth, but Park View scored two in the bottom of the sixth, cutting the lead to just 10-7. It looked as if there might be light at the end of the tunnel. The Lady Indians dampened the PV dugout spirits, however, with a two more runs in the top of the seventh leaving the Lady Dragons needing five runs in the bottom of the inning just to achieve a tie. It wasn’t to be as the Lady Dragons fell 12-7.
