February 18, 2022, f the Ponder Lady Lions softball team took on the Peaster Lady Greyhounds. In the first inning, both teams were scoreless with a score 0-0, but Ponder eventually got going with 2 points in the second inning. In the 3rd and 4th innings, Ponder gained a with 8 points against Peaster’s 6 . But Peaster came back in the next inning tying the game up. But in comes the heroine of the night was Lucy Davis getting a 2 run walk-off single to win the ball game! Freshman Tessa Taft was HUGE on offense hitting 3 of 4 at bat almost completing a cycle with a single, double, and a triple-just missing a home run  to have a complete cycle. Senior Hannah Jackson was also a consistent force on offense hitting 2 out of 3 bats. Mollie Taft led the Lady Lions tonight in the circle with 17 strikeouts.  Great job all around, Lady Lions, against a tough Peaster team!
