With rain interrupting the Ladycats' softball schedule this past week, Cassville only played one game, which turned out to be a 5-2 loss to Miller last Tuesday.
The Ladycats, coached by Ben Abramovitz and Randy Robertson, got on the scoreboard first with a run in the second inning. Miller answered back in the third inning to tie up the game and then had a huge fourth inning, plating four runs.
Cassville was unable to regain the lead, tallying only one more run in the sixth inning to leave the final score at 5-2 in Miller's favor.
Pitching duties were shared by cousins Lindsey Turner and Jaime Everett. Turner pitched four innings and was relieved by Everett in the fifth. Turner, who took the loss, tallied five strikeouts and Everett was credited with four.
The Ladycats had five hits against Miller. Courtney Beagle had one hit, which was a triple, and also earned one RBI and two stolen bases. Other Ladycats who recorded hits were Leah Denton, Dakota Bowman, Jessie Meadows and Turner.
The Ladycats played Seneca on Tuesday night at home, which was the start of a four-game home stand. Cassville is scheduled to play East Newton on Thursday, Carthage on Sept. 15 and Carl Junction on Sept. 16 before going back out on the road against Aurora on Sept. 18.
