Things looked a little grim for the Yazoo County softball team headed into Monday night’s match up against McLaurin. The Lady Panthers were without their starting first baseman, Quertisha Bullock, and ace pitcher, Catrina Hall.
That didn’t stop them for claiming a 10-9 come-from-behind victory.
“Over spring break we had a few injuries and I needed some players to step up and those spots,” Yazoo County head coach Grant Andrews said. “Whitley Stiff and Kelsey Anderson stepped up and pitched well.”
Hall injured her ankle in a 2-1 loss to Winona over spring break and Bullock suffered a broken nose, according to Andrews. Hall was expected to return to the circle for Tuesday night’s game at Amanda Elzy, while Bullock is expected back for Friday night’s home game against Winona.
