Double Disappointment For Cecil Softball In State Playoffs

Each team was fighting for a chance to play for a state title in softball for their respective division, and the results for Perryville and Rising Sun were equally heartbreaking. Each game came down to the final out. Each Cecil team lost by one run.

While Perryville played relatively flawlessly in defeat, Rising Sun could look to their own miscues when reflecting on the loss. The Lady Tigers managed to get thrown out at the plate three times, committed other rally-ending base-running errors and failed to execute defensively during a three-run outburst by McDonough-Pomfret that allowed the eventual winning run to cross the plate.

The Lady Tigers entered the state semifinal game at Bachman Park in Glen Burnie with a 21-1 record. The 3-2 loss to McDonough put an end to a season that seemed destined to garner a state championship for Rising Sun.

On an adjacent field at the Bachman Park complex, Perryville was locked in a 0-0 extra inning battle with Mountain Ridge from Allegany County in Western Maryland. The Lady Panthers were held hitless through the first four innings when starting pitcher Lindsey Poore tried to help her cause. After reaching base on a fielder’s choice, Poore advanced to second on the first hit of the game for the Lady Panthers. When Marissa Phillips singled to left field, Poore tried to score and was thrown at home to end the inning and potential rally.

The scoring attempt my Poore made her the only runner to advance past second base until the final play of the game. While pitching a complete game, Poore stymied the Lady Rams, holding them to two hits in regulation.

Extra innings brought on the “International Tiebreaker” where the last batter from the previous inning is put on second base.  Perryville had the first chance to plate the free runner from second and failed. Mountain Ridge executed a bunt perfectly to advance the runner and have the batter reach safely. The ensuing ground ball to the left side of the infield produced a throw to the plate that reached a little too late. Mountain Ridge secured the 1-0 win ending Perryville’s playoff run.
