Lady ’Stangs stampede visiting Lady Lions

NEEDLES — The Lady ’Stangs softball team took care of business by getting an early 2-0 record in the NIAA Division 3 South by beating Calvary Chapel 12-1 and 21-5 in doubleheader action March 20.

Coach Ray Limon said the girls didn't have their swing down as good in the first game as they did in the second game. They needed to adjust to a pitcher they'd never seen before, he continued.

There were adjustments with staff but younger players stepped up and did what they had to, he said.

The girls will face Mohave Accelerated at Nikki Bunch Field at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 24. They then host Blythe at 1 and 3 p.m. Friday, March 27.
