Mason's walk-off single gives Troup 2-1 win over Sabine
Bethany Mason was grace under pressure Friday night.
The Troup shortstop faced an 0-1 count with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning and runners on second and third when she stroked a ground ball between the Sabine shortstop and third baseman, which drove in Cheyenne Kirkland as the game-winning run as Troup clipped the Lady Cardinals, 2-1.
The win allowed the Lady Tigers to avenge their only District 18-2A loss of the season, which came in early March when the Lady Tigers and the Lady Cards faced off for the first time.
The Lady Tiger win rocketed Troup (11-12, 7-1 18-2A) into a tie for first with Harmony.
