Saturday’s softball game between Stephenville and Granbury was played partly to highlight breast cancer awareness.
As for on the field, the host Lady Pirates are also doing plenty to make folks aware.
The 14-4 nondistrict victory against the Honeybees was the Lady Pirates’ fourth straight win. In that streak they’ve outscored their opponents 71-7.
“Winning a tough game against Stephenville is great for our kids as far as competition as we will see Aledo this week,” said Lady Pirates coach Mallory Smith.
The Lady Pirates (9-3) returned to District 7-4A play yesterday with a game at South Hills. Friday, Granbury travels to Aledo.
Granbury (4-0) has outscored its district opponents 79-6.
Aledo, also 4-0 in the league entering last night, has outscored its district foes 65-2.
Granbury pitcher Destini Lopez struck out eight batters and was also 2-for-4 batting.
Brooke Massey led the Granbury 15-hit attack, going 3-for-4 with three runs batted in and a pair of stolen bases.
“I think it is very important to help our kids experience raising money for a good cause like this one,” Smith said.
“It is neat for both of these teams to unite for this cause and try to help strike out cancer together.”
