CHS Ladies rally past Beau Chene; Vermilion Catholic slips past Lady Warriors
CROWLEY – Katelyn Killmer and Lauren Breaux provided a pair of towering home runs in the seventh inning to lead the Crowley Ladies to a dramatic 15-13 come-from-behind victory over Beau Chene Monday in the District 4-4A opener for both teams.
The Ladies seemed to be well in control of the contest early when they scored in each of the first five innings and took an 11-3 advantage heading into the top of the seventh.
But Beau Chene rallied and pushed across 10 runs in the top of the final frame on eight hits, one walk and four CHS errors to stun the Ladies and take a 13-11 lead.
The Ladies answered right back, however.
Maddie LeBouef got things going with a leadoff walk and Killmer followed with a two-run home run over the center field wall to tie the game. Taylor Grabowski then reached base on a fielder’s choice and, with one out, Breaux drove a pitch over the right field wall to win the game.
LeBouef had three hits for the Ladies, including a triple and an RBI while Breaux had two hits and two RBI. Bailee Villejoin added two hits, including a triple and an RBI and Melaina Doughty had a pair of singles. Killmer added one hit and three RBI, Erica Thibodeaux had one hit and two RBI and Kristen Bonin singled in a run. Grabowski and Amber Vincent rounded out the offensive attack with one hit each.
