Lady Pirates end LC-M’s perfect chance, remain tied for 2nd

VIDOR —

Ending a possible perfect District 20-4A season for district champion Little Cypress-Mauriceville Tuesday night, the Vidor Lady Pirates still don’t know what playoff seed they will own when they enter the 4A Region III playoffs next week.

Using the timely hitting by Shanice Hagler and the pitching of senior ace Gia Johns, the Lady Pirates downed the Lady Bears 7-4 at Lady Pirate Field.

The Lady Pirates (21-9, 10-4) wrapped up the regular season in a three-way tie for second-place with both Nederland and Port Neches-Groves. PN-G nipped Livingston 5-4 to help keep the three-way tie secure.

The three teams will likely settle the three playoff spots with games at the end of this week. 

The Lady Bears (27-5, 13-1) are still the “queens” of 20-4A and will likely face Dayton, the possible fourth-place team out of 19-4A, next week in the bidistrict round of the postseason.

The Lady Pirates set the tone early by scoring a pair of runs of Lady Bears starter Raven Cole in the first inning.

Kelli Milligan drew a leadoff walk, swiped second and went to third on a wild pitch then Kalli Edwards drew a walk.

Hagler, who was 3-for-4, drove a two-run double to left.

Vidor tacked on two more runs in the bottom half of the second inning.

Haley Demby drew a one-out walk and went to second on a wild pitch and advanced o third with two outs on a passed ball. Edwards punched a single up the middle that scored Demby. Edwards swiped second base and darted home off a Hagler RBI single to shallow center to up the margin to 4-0.

The Lady Bears scratched in a run off Johns in the top of the third.

Mikaela Stegall had a leadoff infield single and advanced to second on a wild pitch.
