Mexia News Staff Report
The Mexia Ladycats dropped their second straight district game, falling to 1-4 after Friday night’s five inning, 16-1 loss to the hands of the Groesbeck Lady Goats.
Groesbeck took an early 9-0 lead after the first three innings of play, but were able to stop the Lady Goats from scoring in the fourth. Problem was, Groesbeck also kept their scoreless inning streak alive by keeping Mexia from getting on the board.
The Lady Goats broke the game wide open in the top of the fifth. With one out and bases loaded, Groesbeck pitcher, Taylor Gruell, took the first pitch she saw over the center field fence for a grand slam home run to boost the Lady Goats lead to 14-0. Groesbeck added two more runs to rub salt into the Ladycats’ wound and closed out the inning with a 16-0 advantage.
