On Tuesday, Feb. 21 the Aledo varsity softball team lost to Grapevine 3-1
Last year this same team beat Aledo 22-10.
“We played well,” said Coach Jeff Lemons.
Going into the game the ‘Cats were 2-2 for the early season. They had beaten Haltom 6-2 and Trinity 9-0 the previous week in the Birdville Tournament.
Grapevine was undefeated going into the game.
The Ladcats’ Allie Arneson #6 had a double in the game and Megan Mason #15, the designated hitter, hit two singles. Kacie Brann, the senior pitcher, who has signed with Angelo State, had a single and an RBI. Alex Cook #9 had a hit, and Tori Gore, a sophomore, scored a run.
“We scored in the sixth, left the bases loaded and needed one hit to make this a completely different game,” Coach Lemons said.
The Ladycats won three of their six games last weekend at their tournament in Aledo. The teams that competed were A&M Consolidated (5A), Grapevine (5A), Aledo (4A), Lake Dallas (4A), Northwest (5A), Arlington Bowie (5A) and Graham (3A).
The tournament opened up with Aledo beating A&M Consolidated 9-5 on Thursday.
Later the Ladycats lost to Grapevine 14-13.
Randy Keck/The Community News: Matt Bishop led the Bearcats Tuesday night with 14 points.
The Aledo Bearcats made it to the playoffs for the first time in four years, and for a while gave the state's number three ranked Trimble Tech Bulldogs all the game they wanted in a bi-district playoff game Tuesday night at Haltom City.
In a classic case of the game being closer than the final score (61-39), Aledo led after one quarter, 13-12, and midway through the second quarter went ahead 19-13 before the Bulldogs started battling back.
