|Patriot baseball splits, softball loses district opener|
By DAVID FOLSE
The learning process continues for the Franklin Parish baseball team.
The young squad took one on the chin last Wednesday against Mangham as they fell, 14-0. However, they came back and picked up a big 14-1 win only a day later against Kilbourne.
William Bland was the winning pitcher on the hill for Franklin Parish thanks to a seven-run third inning outburst.
However, later that day, they were defeated by Block, 6-2 as the offense disappeared and managed only a single hit.
Franklin Parish came back on Saturday to secure a close 2-0 win over Monterey in the final game of their tournament as Zach Hughes' two-run single was all the offense that was needed in the game.
On the softball diamond, the Franklin Parish Lady Patriots fell in an extra-inning heartbreaker to the Neville Tigers, 4-1 to open up district play.
Taking an early 1-0 advantage after the first inning, Neville would tie the game in the sixth and the score would remain 1-1 until the 11th before the Lady Tigers put together three hits to push across three runs to take home the victory.
Caitlin Taylor was the winner pitcher for Neville while Kristyn Norman took the loss in the circle for Franklin Parish.
"We were able to push across an early run," Lady Patriots Head Coach Brian Gunter said. "We played great defense until the sixth inning when they were able to tie it up. Then that is how we stayed until the 11th when Neville was able to put three hits together to push across three runs and take the lead.
"We hadn't been playing our best ball as of late, but this game did show me at times what we are capable of doing when we can."
