The playoff bound Eagle Pass Lady Eagles’ varsity girls’ softball team currently perched in third place in the district race with a district mark of 8-4 ventured to San Antonio, Texas on Friday, April 13, 2018 to take on the undefeated and currently district leading Southwest Lady Dragons in a key 7:00 PM softball diamond matchup.

Lady Dragons entered this contest with an unblemished district record of 12-0 but are coming off a narrow escape against the Laredo LBJ Lady Wolves with a dramatic comeback in the seventh inning last week. The visiting Lady Eagles paced by the sensational pitching performance by Kaitlin Galvan who simply dominated inside the circle going the distance against the perennially power hitting, high scoring and previously undefeated district leading Southwest Lady Dragons carrying a no-hitter through five complete innings of play and at one point had retired the first 12 batters in a row to start the game and earned the pitching victory hurling seven complete innings allowing no runs and scattered just three harmless hits to give the Lady Eagles the huge victory over a highly ranked and powerful team by the final score of 3 to 0. Offensively the Lady Eagles were led by their yearlong top three hitters Brooke Diaz, Leslie Martinez and Alexandra Martinez who combined their efforts to account for eight out of their nine total base hits in this game with Kayla Ochoa accounting for the other base hit.

The Lady Eagles took the early lead in this game with a lone run in the top of the first with Brooke Diaz belting a one out single, Alexandra Martinez followed with another single, Leslie Martinez then stroked an RBI double to drive in Brooke Diaz with the first run of the game. The Lady Eagles loaded the base with only one out in the top of the first but unfortunately left all three runners stranded.

In the top half of the second the Lady Eagles padded their lead with a pair of runs with Kayla Ochoa connected with a one out single, with one out Brooke Diaz came through once again with a solid base hit, Alexandra Martinez drew a base on balls to load the bases for Leslie Martinez who blasted a two RBI double to drive in Kayla Ochoa and Brooke Diaz to give the Lady Eagles a 3 to 0 lead over the stunned Southwest Lady Dragons.

The remainder of this contest was entrusted into the Golden arm of standout starting pitcher Kaitlin Galvan who did not allow a single runner to reach second base in the entire game getting 17 infield outs out of the 21 outs in this game as the Lady Eagles knocked off the previously undefeated district leading San Antonio Southwest Lady Dragons by the final score of 3 to 0 much to the approval of the Loyal Legion of Lady Eagles faithful in attendance as well as several South San Lady Bobcats supporters who came to root for the Lady Eagles as the Southwest loss drops them into a tie with the Lady Bobcats each sporting a district mark of 12-1 and thus now sets up what is expected to be quite a softball diamond battle next Tuesday when South San hosts Southwest in the district and regular season finale with the winner of that matchup clinching the 2018 District 29-6Asoftball championship title. The victorious Lady Eagles improve their district record to 9-4 and remain in sole possession of third place in the district race with one more game remaining in district play where the Lady Eagles will entertain the Del Rio Queens next Tuesday, April 17, 2018 in a 7:00 PM district matchup at the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center softball field. This game has been designated as Parent’s night with the Lady Eagles paying tribute to their respective parents.

Eagle Pass Sports Central who has been the only local media entity that has covered the entire Eagle Pass Lady Eagles softball season congratulates the Lady Eagles on their huge victory over the Southwest Lady Dragons and wish you the very best of luck against the Del Rio Queens as well as in the upcoming post season playoffs.
