The power hitting Eagle Pass Lady Eagles’ varsity girls’ softball team continued their respective Spring Break softball schedule on Thursday, March 15. 2018 by hosting the current district co-leading San Antonio Southwest Lady Dragons in a 2:00 PM District 29-6A softball diamond marquee matchup at the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center with the Loyal Legion of Lady Eagles followers and supporters in attendance. The visiting Lady Dragons ventured into this key matchup sporting an unblemished district mark of 5-0 while the home standing Lady Eagles entered sporting a district record of 3-2.

The visiting high scoring Lady Dragons took the early lead in this game with a lone run in the top o the first inning courtesy of a two out throwing error. Bu the valiant and proud Lady Eagles who never back down from any challenge countered back with a two run output in the bottom of the third with Kayla Ochoa leading off the frame with a single, leadoff batter Heather Ruiz followed with a booming two run home run to give the Lady Eagles a 2 to 1lead over the Lady Dragons/

Eagle Pass young starting standout hurler Kaitlin Galvan was dominant inside the circle against the usually power hitting and high scoring Lady Dragons taking that 2 to 1 lead into the top of the fifth where she was relieved by Alyssa Galvan who inherited a two out situation with two runners on base, the first batter that Alyssa Galvan faced hit a shot for a two RBI double to give the Lady Dragons a 3 to 2 lead over the Lady Eagles. The Lady Dragons extended their lead with a pair of runs in the top of the sixth to take a 5to lead heading to the sixth inning of this game.

In the bottom of the sixth the home standing Lady Eagles fought back to try and retake the lead with Alexandra Martinez leading off the frame with a walk, with two outs, Kayla Ochoa also drew a base on balls as did Heather Ruiz to load the bases, Leslie Martinez followed with an RBI single to bring home Alexandra Martinez with the bases remaining loaded for the Lady Eagles leading hitter and top RBI producer Brooke Diaz who boomed a shot down the left field line for an apparent go ahead grand slam home run which would have given the Lady Eagles a 7 to5 lead but the man in blue unfortunately called it a foul ball much to the disapproval of the Loyal Legion of Lady Eagles fans in attendance. Brooke Diaz eventually flied out to right field to end the threat.

The Lady Dragons tacked on an insurance run courtesy of a solo homerun to take a 6 to 3 lead over the Lady Eagles who went down quietly in the bottom of the seventh enabling the Southwest Lady Dragons to escape with the 6 to3 victory over the Eagle Pass Lady Eagles.
