Softball: John Ehret outscores Terrebonne in wild contest, 23-19
Area Prep Softball Report for Thursday, Mar. 7
The only thing that could stop John Ehret and Terrebonne from scoring Wednesday was darkness.
The Lady Patriots outscored the Tigers 23-19 in Marrero Wednesday. The game was called after four and a half innings due to darkness.
It started out the way it ended and it began badly for John Ehret.
Terrebonne scored nine runs in the top of the first inning on four hits, three walks and a pair of errors and it looked like the Tigers may win easily.
Ehret fought back, scoring in every inning. Ehret scored three runs in the bottom of the first to cut the deficit to 9-3 before Terrebonne scored twice to make it 11-3 going to the bottom of the second.
That’s when the Lady Patriots erupted for 12 runs to take a 15-11 lead.
Ehret scored four runs in the third inning to take a 19-11 lead but the Tigers answered with eight runs in the top of the fourth to tie the game when Ehret scored four runs to decide the outcome. Terrebonne did not score in the top of the fifth and the game was called at that point.
Eric Adams and Layla Llorens were the hitting stars for Ehret. Adams had three hits and walked once while Llorens added three hits and walked twice.
“We swung the bats well throughout, especially with runners on base,” Ehret coach Sheena Smith said. “Both pitchers struggled but both offenses were really good. The umpires decided that we could not continue the game at that point. They decided that it was an official game. We would like to have finished it but it was not possible. It’s the first time since I have been coaching that this has ever happened.”
Ehret (1-2) returns to action Friday at Avondale Playground against Karr at 4 p.m. at the Ehret Tournament while Terrebonne (0-2) will next face Destrehan Mar. 14 in the District 7-5A opener for both teams.
