|Lady Panthers hang on for win over Antwerp|
By JOE SHOUSE
ANTWERP – On Friday, against county rival Paulding, a four run seventh inning by the Archers wasn’t enough as the Panthers walked away with a 7-6 victory. Heading into the seventh inning, it appeared the Panthers had the game locked up holding a 7-2 advantage, but the Archers made it interesting at the end.
In their last at bats, the inning opened with Darian Bauer and Cheyenne Miller-Sweet, both Lady Archer sophomores, reaching base after being walked. Avrial Sawyer delivered a high pop up to right field that was misjudged allowing Bauer and Miller-Sweet to score to pull the Archers to within three at 7-4. With one runner on, Nikki Hughes walked to give Antwerp another opportunity to close the gap. Following a strikeout, Marivelle Flint cracked a hit followed by an Olivia Temple grounder in the gap to allow two runs score to make the final score 7-6.
