Senior third baseman Meredith Edwards slides safely into second base during the middle innings against the Lindale Eagles March 7.

The Wills Point Lady Tigers crammed a season's worth of ups and downs into one game on Tuesday night, building up a seemingly insermountable lead only to watch Lindale mount a furious comeback that ultimately culminated in a 12-8 loss.

After getting three quick outs against Lindale in the top of the first inning, Wills Point wasted little time in getting on the scoreboard during their first opportunity at bat.

Alexis Mosley began the inning with a single to left, followed by a single to center by Meredith Edwards.

A misplayed groundball by the Lindale defense helped to load the bases, and a similar scenario on a Dee Donaldson grounder helped to produce the first run of the game for the Lady Tigers.

Jeslyn Martinez picked up an RBI by beating out a bunt single, followed by a an RBI sacrifice fly from Harley Sieber, an RBI double from Hailey Hoover and an RBI on a bunt by Olivia McMath.
