The New Boston Lady Lions saw their season come to a close Friday night after a hard fought, two game series with the Prairiland Lady Patriots.

Prairiland won Game One on Thursday by a score of 5-3 and closed out the first round series last night with a 3-0 win.

The Lady Lions outhit Prairiland on Friday 7-5 but could not push any runs across against Lady Patriot starter Bri Calabria.

The Lady Lions loaded the bases in the 3rd inning on singles from Hannah White and Morgan McAlexander, followed by a walk to Carlee Ratcliff, but left the bases full.

In all, the Lady Lions left 11 runners on base in the contest.

On the hill, Morgan McAlexander had another superb outing. In the two-game series, McAlexander struck out 13, capping a season that saw her be the pitcher that New Boston needed to get them into the postseason and end the regular season with a 21-8 record.

2017 was definitely a season that New Boston proved that softball is a team sport with great individual performances up and down the lineup. With McAlexander’s pitching and a lineup that proved any spot on the card could provide a game winning, clutch hit when needed, Coach Jason Arsenault had much success in his first year and has a strong foundation to build upon for 2018.
