The Crossett Lady Eagles beat Camden on Thursday, but lost to Magnolia on Friday.

On Thursday, the Lady Eagles hosted Camden Fairview and came from behind for a four-point win.

Camden scored two runs in the top of the first, but the Lady Eagles took back the lead in the bottom half.

With two outs on the board, Lexie Cameron hit a double to knock Abby Senn and Addison Christy in for the first two Crossett runs of the game. Mary Kate Armstrong followed with a home run, sending Cameron in ahead of her and giving the Eagles a 4-2 lead.

In the top of the second, the first Camden batter reached base on error, but she was left stranded. Sunni Beth Lee grabbed three grounders in a row on first base to bring the Eagles into bat.

Jenna Roberts hit a sacrifice fly to bring Lee and Anna Claire Atchinson in to home for two runs, and Thurmon hit a home run over center field to send Atchinson in. The Lady Eagles took the field to start the third inning leading 7-2.

Camden went three up three down and the Lady Eagles came back into bat.

Neither team scored again until the sixth inning, when Roberts scored on a hit by Christy to give the Eagles eight runs.

In the top of the seventh, Lee caught the first two outs on first base, putting the Eagles one out a way from victory. A few fielding errors put Camden runners on base and two were able to steal their way around to home before Atchinson caught the last out in left field to end the game with a final score of 8-4.

On Friday, the Lady Eagles were in the lead right up until the end when they fell 13-12 to the Magnolia Panthers.

The Lady Eagles went three up three down in the top of the first, but by the end of the third inning were winning 8-3.

In the top of the fourth, Lainey Taunton knocked Dalton Barnett and Cameron in to give the Eagles 10 and Lee hit a double to bring in Armstrong’s courtesy runner to make the score 11-3.

Magnolia scored two in the bottom of the fourth and another in the bottom of the sixth, but the Eagles were still leading 11-6 in the top of the sixth.

The first two Panther batters reached on error and it was uphill from there for Lady Eagles.

When Thurmon got the third out to end the inning, the Panthers had 10 points on the board.

The Eagles came in to start the seventh leading 11-10, but were only able to score one run. Cameron hit a line drive to center to knock Senn in to give the Eagles 12.

The Lady Eagles took the field and the Panthers tied the game and scored one more to walk off with a 13-12 win over Crossett.

The Lady Eagles hosted Monticello on Tuesday night, but results were not available at press time. The Lady Eagles will travel to Warren on Thursday night to face the Lady Jacks.
