|OCS falls in marathon|
SULPHUR–The Ouachita Christian School Lady Eagles' efforts at making history Saturday night in the LHSAA 1A state softball championship contest came up just a bit short.
"We feel blessed at the opportunity that we had to do what we did," said OCS coach Andy Mosher. "Erin (Tyler) said she had no regrets and no reason to cry. Hayley (Byars) said we had more fun playing the game than Delcambre did and Delcambre won it. I couldn't be more proud of our team. They played with a lot of class. I think the way they handled losing the game says more about the character of these young ladies than making it that far in the first place does."
The Lady Eagles were unable to punch the winning run across in the bottom of the 13th inning. Delcambre (pronounced Delcom)
The game had all the makings of a barnburner in the early going.
