Lady Lions Split with Barton Bulldogs

Lady Lions Split with Barton Bulldogs

Franklin Springs, GA - The Emmanuel Lady Lions took on the Barton Bulldogs for a double header event.  In game one the day, the Lady Lions came out strong to shut down the Bulldogs and score first when Freshman Cheyenne Galloway hit a double, Kalen Callaway then hit to moved her over and Madison Franklin brought her in with a fly ball to the outfield.  Barton came back top of the 2nd to score another run and out of character, the Lady Lions fell silent as the Bulldogs continued to rally.  Barton scored two more runs in the 3rd, three in the 4th, and then three more runs in the 5th to beat the Lady Lions 9-1.

In game two of the match up, Barton once again came out firing and scored one run but the Lady Lions refused to have a repeat of the previous game.  Kara Hembree first singled to left field to start an overdue rally for the Lions and Cheyenne Galloway laid down a sacrifice bunt to move Hembree to second.  From there Kalen Callaway doubled down the right field line to bring in Hembree to tie up the score.  Madison Franklin then grounded out to second base to move Callaway to third and Kirsten Hill double to right center to bring Callaway in.  This brought the Lady Lions ahead 2-1. Both teams would hold each other at that until the end of the game; final score 2-1 Emmanuel.

Key Contributors include: Kalen Callaway and Kirsten Hill both with doubles, RBI's from Kalen Callaway and Kirsten Hill, and Kara Hembree going 2 for 3 at the plate.

Coach Alexander commented on the games saying "This weekend, we have had a few very hard fought games. I'm proud of our girls. They've worked hard and they've battled. After a day off, we look forward to getting back on the field."
