Pearsall’s Lady Mavs moved to 2-0 in league play, snapping a three-game losing streak, holding off Carrizo Springs 11-10 and blanking Crystal City in 30-4A action last week.
Maddy Bradley led the offensive effort against Carrizo Springs as she went four for four at the plate and had a solo homerun in the second inning.
The Lady Mavs took the lead in the second after the Lady Wildcats plated a pair of runs at the top of the second. Pearsall responded with five-runs at the bottom of the stanza.
Pearsall increased its lead in the third but nearly squandered it down the stretch as Carrizo Springs came roaring back.
“The girls found it within themselves to trust one another and get the job done and that’s what I’m most proud of,” PHS Head Coach Tara Staten said. “They all showed heart, confidence and were determined to win that game.
Destiny Sanchez notched the victory on the mound going the full seven innings.
“In the top of the seventh we were only up by one run and I asked Destiny if she could finish because I was going to put in another pitcher and give her the last inning off,” Coach Staten said. “But she refused and was determined and promised to finish and she did amazing.”
Pearsall then won a 10-0 decision Monday evening over Crystal City in their second district outing.
“We played really well and Sophia Garza was the winning pitcher,” the coach said. “We executed plays and made contact with the ball. I am excited to take on Uvalde at home on Thursday night.”
Pearsall will host Uvalde this Friday as they look to improve to 2-0 for the season. The Lady Mavs will then be on the road for the final three games of league play.
