The North Lamar Pantherettes competed in the Allen Softball Tournament and finished 4-2 in the Tourney. North Lamar defeated The Colony, Royse City, WT White, and Uruline while losing to Lewisville and F. Lone Star.
North Lamar opened up the tournament with a 4-0 shutout loss to Lewisville. North Lamar’s lone hit of the game came off the bat of Tanna Huie. Lewisville scored four runs on eight hits, with all their runs coming in the fifth inning.
The second game was a much different outcome for the Pantherettes as they defeated The Colony 4-3. After giving up three runs in the first inning to The Colony, North Lamar settled down. The Pantherettes scored one in the third and three more in the fourth inning to take the lead for good. North Lamar was able to hold on for a 4-3 victory. Balee Brown and Bailey Jones each had one RBI for North Lamar. Maddison Morrison went 2-2 at the plate and scored a run.
Game three saw the Pantherettes hold onto a 6-5 lead even though Royse City outhit North Lamar 11-5. The game see-sawed back and forth through the first four innings. Tanna Huie put the Pantherettes up for good with a two-run homer that scored Sarah Penrose. Bailee Nickerson also had two RBI and Lauren Coursey had one.
Game four was the only other loss for North Lamar on the weekend as they fell to F. Lone Star 4-3. All seven runs were scored in the second inning of the game as North Lamar couldn’t overcome two errors. All four runs credited to Lone Star were unearned runs. Tanna Huie and Lindsey Cook each finished with one RBI.
Perhaps the easiest game of the tournament came against WT White as North Lamar defeated them 14-1. North Lamar capitalized on 10 errors by WT White as only two of the 14 runs were earned. Maddison Morrison pitched for the Pantherettes and only gave up two hits and one run. Delaney England went 4-4 at the plate and had three RBI for North Lamar. Sarah Penrose finished with 2 RBI as did Tanna Huie. Kayla Igleheart also added one RBI.
The Pantherettes finished out play with a 5-2 win over Ursuline. Once again the Pantherettes were able to capitalize on the mistakes of their opponents. This time it was five errors that helped North Lamar. The Pantherettes jumped out to a 5-0 lead after two innings before holding on for the victory. Balee Brown and Erin Scholl each had an RBI while Delaney England knocked in two runs for North Lamar.
I’m not sure anyone in the gym expected the game to go quite like it did Friday night. The North Lamar Panthers and the Canton Eagles faced each other in the Area round of the playoffs. North Lamar defeated Rains 67-21 on Tuesday to advance to the matchup in Royce City.
North Lamar and Canton both seemed a little jittery at first. After one quarter it was a close game with North Lamar up 10-8. The second quarter, though was a different story as North Lamar broke the game open by outscoring the Eagles 19-10 in the quarter.
The third quarter and fourth quarter, the Panthers locked down defensively just like they did in round one of the playoffs. North Lamar held Canton to only 13 second-half points. This is after only allowing five points in the second half of their game against Rains.
“[Defense] is part of our program. That’s first and foremost,” Coach Homer Garner said after the win. “When you step into the gym at North Lamar, we’re going to play defense and we’re going to rebound.”
North Lamar pulled away to claim a 70-31 victory in the Area round of the playoffs. North Lamar’s size seemed to be too much for the Eagles with Hunter Sartor, Ty Jones and Tyler Anthony down low. The Panthers grabbed 38 rebound on the night, with 14 of those being offensive boards. Sartor grabbed nine boards and seven of those were offensive.
“Most of us have been playing together since seventh grade,” Hunter Sartor said after the game when asked about the teams chemistry. “So our chemistry is on.”
Sartor also led the team in scoring with 22 points while Versache Buchanan knocked down 14 points and finished 4-7 from behind the three-point line.
With the win, North Lamar moves on to the Regional Quarter-Finals on Tuesday night. The Panthers will play Brownsboro at 7:00 p.m. in Wills Point.
