Lady Lions battle way into the brackets
By Kenny Mitchell
New Boston senior Madison Thomas was in best mode Tuesday night and determined to get the W in her last home game as a Lady Lion and drove in five runs to help New Boston beat the visiting Paul Pewitt Lady Brahmas 12-2. Thomas’ onslaught with the bat included a three-run triple in the 2nd inning that opened the flood gates for the Lady Lions.
The win locked down 4th place in the district standings for the ladies from New Boston and sent them into the postseason brackets.
Coach Jason Arsenault and his Lady Lions will face the Lady Patriots from Prairiland in the first round, with a location and date still to be determined.
In the game Tuesday night, the Lady Lions celebrated Senior Night by pounding the Paul Pewitt pitching staff for 12 hits. Thomas, Angel Evans and Alexis Morden each had multi-hit performances.
On the mound, Morgan McAlexander earned the win for New Boston, allowing two runs on one hit and striking out nine.
