BOSSIER CITY, La. The Meridian Community College Lady Eagles bolstered their position in the Region 23 standings with a road split against the Bossier Parish Community College Lady Cavaliers Saturday.
Bossier narrowly averted a sweep in the closing contest, exploding for five runs in the bottom of the fifth.
With MCC leading 4-1, the Lady Cavs pushed home the needed scores.
Amy Adcox came on in the frame, inheriting a bases-loaded jam from starter Ryan Reid. Adcox took the loss by virtue of the fifth score. The Lady Eagles committed two errors in the frame.
Adcox saw her record drop to 22-3 on the season.
It was a loss that didn't sit too well with MCC head coach Robert Eakins.
MCC (34-10) is seeking its second straight trip to the National Junior College Fastpitch Tournament in Kissimmee, Fla.
Entering its road series at Bossier last season, MCC had 12 losses.
Multiple hitters in the loss were Dreka Shumpert, Stephanie Dixon, Shanna Blanks and Aree Jenkins, who led the output with three hits.
LaKenya Wilson added a double. Crystal Mack and Candace Manuel led the hitting attack in both games.
In the case of a split next week, the two teams will play a one-game playoff for the Region 23 crown.
Gm. 1, MCC 10, Bossier Parish 0: In the opening game, the Lady Eagles crushed its hosts behind a dominant performance on the hill from Adcox.
She compiled her 22nd victory by hurling a two-hitter and striking out four batters.
Dana Lemoine took the loss for BPCC in the opener and was successful in the closing game. The Lady Cavaliers committed five errors in the first game.
Wilson and Blanks were again key hitters for MCC, who will play a doubleheader at Wallace-Hanceville Monday at 1 p.m.
