WACO, Texas — In a pivotal, winner-takes-all bi-district playoff game, the Academy Lady Bees continued their offensive resurgence, beating Teague 18-5 to advance to the area round.
Academy opened the game with a six-run first inning which included an inside-the-park home run from freshman Jerica Henry and a three-run home run (which went over the fence) from freshman Yasmine Traore.
Teague would slowly chip away at the Academy lead over the next few innings, cutting the lead to just two runs on passed ball in the third inning.
