Lady Rebels advance in softball playoffs
The West Monroe softball team enters the second round of the LHSAA Class 5A playoffs on Friday at No. 4 St. Amant.
First pitch is set for 5 p.m.
The Lady Rebels earned the second round road trip with a 2-0 win at No. 13 Destrehan off a shutout gem pitched by senior Cassidy Rhea.
Destrehan pitcher Tyler Oubre had a no-hitter going for herself through five innings, but in the sixth an intentional walk and an error loaded the bases and a hit by Jenna McKey gave the No. 20-seeded Lady Rebels all the offense they would need to finish off the Lady Wildcats.
The game sets up to be another classic with two of the state’s premiere program’s going head-to-head for a ticket to the state tournament in Sulphur.
St. Amant (29-2) comes into the game riding a 16-game winning streak while the Lady Rebels are riding huge momentum and have won their last three road contests.
