Lady Lions Struggle Over Break


Mallorie Joplin, Reporter

March 11, 2022, The Ponder Lady Lions softball team took up against the Pilot Point Bearcats and suffered a tragic loss. Ponder ended up with just 3 points while Pilot Point came crashing in with 13 points. The girls fought hard but just couldn’t keep up with the Pilot Point bats. The Lady Lions had got 3 hits that night while Brooke Matamoros hit her 2nd HR of the season and Hidee Wilson added a stand-up triple while Tessa Taft added a double.  The Lady Lions are 1-1 in the district and 6-9 on the season.

March 15, 2022, The Ponder Lady Lions softball team then took up against the Paradise Panthers. The game was tied at one with Paradise batting in the top of the sixth when an error scored two runs for Paradise, but Ponder then came up scoring 2 points. Not surely after the Paradise Panthers then overpowered Ponder with 3 points scored. During the big game, Mollie Taft recorded her 100th strikeout of the season! Striking out 10 paradise panthers! Both she and Brooke Matamoros each had one hit and Hidee Wilson drove in one run. The Panthers ended up winning with the three points they had gotten, and Ponder leaving at 2. Even though a tough loss it was a fantastic job to all of the girls against the tough Paradise Panthers.
