For the first time in District 7-4A softball the Aledo Ladycats had to play past the fifth inning.
In fact, they had to go a full seven innings against Granbury Lady Pirates on the GHS field Friday.
The Ladycats won 9-0 to take over sole possession of first place in the league with a 6-0 record (21-3 overall). But Granbury coach Chad Kimberling said he knows his Lady Pirates can hang with the No. 3 squad in the state.
