The Lady Blues softball team fell in the bi-district round of the playoffs Saturday to the Mineral Wells Lady Rams in a three-game series.
The Blues came into the series with a 2-0-1 season record against the Lady Rams, and had beaten Mineral Wells 10-3 the last time the two teams had faced each other before heading into the series.
In the first game of the series Friday night at Lady Blue Field, the Blues took a 10-1 win over the Lady Rams.
The Blues were down 1-0 in the game until late in the third inning.
Macy Nantz belted a two-run double with two outs before Krisha Hamm drove in Nantz with an RBI double of her own.
Tanisha Reeve drove in Hamm with an RBI double and like that the Blues had a 4-1 lead heading into the fourth.
In the bottom of the fourth, freshman outfielder Lexie Allen hit a line drive three-run home run over the left field wall, and the Blues also picked up three runs in the fifth to close things out.
The Blues clearly weren't themselves on Saturday during games 2 and 3 of the series in Mineral Wells.
Errors and missed opportunities plagued the Blues while the Lady Rams played like there was no tomorrow.
The Blues got down 9-2 early in the Saturday's first game with their only runs coming from a two-run homer from Hamm.
A line drive rope to left field from Macey Spears got the Blues back into the game in the seventh but it wouldn't be enough as the Blues fell 9-7 to tie the three-game series at 1-1.
In the rubber match, the Rams came out hot once again and got four runs in the opening inning.
Another run would come for the Rams in the second inning and the Blues found themselves down 5-0 early in the game.
The Blues fought back, but the damage had already been done as the Blues fell 6-5 to end their season.
