LIVINGSTON — The Bridge City Lady Cardinals will look to bounce back today in their best-of-three Class 4A Region III area round playoff series with the Caldwell Lady Hornets after they dropped a tough 3-2 decision in eight innings Friday at Texas Slam Academy in Livingston’s Texas Slam Academy.

Peyton Trapp had the big hit for the Lady Cardinals (29-3) as she belted a two-run home run to spark the offense.

Senior Faith Kaufman was 2-for-3 and fellow senior Baili Thibodaux was 1-for-4 and Meagan Sourdellia was 1-for-4 as hits were hard to come by against Caldwell (28-6) pitching.

Game Two will be today back at Livingston’s Texas Slam Academy at 2 p.m. with Game Three, if necessary, to start 30 minutes after Game Two.

The winner between the Lady Cardinals and the Lady Hornets will face either Liberty or Giddings in the Region III quarterfinals next week.
