SHVP downs Lady Jays
MAMOU – A bases loaded hit by the Lady Trojans lifted Sacred Heart of Ville Platte to a 3-2 win over St. Edmund in Acadiana Softball League play.
The Lady Jays grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning when Kinsley Marcantel walked and scored on a hit by Anna Belle Fontenot.
Sacred Heart answered with a two-run hit by Gena Manuel to push the Lady Trojans ahead in the bottom of the frame.
The Lady Jays threatened in the top of the second inning when Sarah Duplechain walked, Kaitlyn Lacour bunted and Ashton Marcantel was hit by a pitch to load the bases.
But the Sacred Heart defense stiffened and shut down the rally.
After Lady Jay pitcher Jaedyn Soileau put down the Lady Trojans in order, St. Edmund tied the game when Kinsley Marcantel reached on an error and scored on a sacrifice by Helen Brown.
St. Edmund returns to action at home on Tuesday when the Lady Jays face Eunice and Crowley in a 5:45 p.m. doubleheader.
Eunice will face Crowley at 4:30 p.m.
