The Palmyra Lady Panthers are 20-8 and like Marceline, they also have a potent offense. Palmyra scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning in Saturday’s quarterfinal against Father Tolton to book their eighth trip to the state’s final four. Lady Panthers coach Jill Arch says coming from behind is not new territory for Palmyra.
Marceline gave up eight runs against Lafayette County in Saturday’s quarterfinal before their offense ended up overpowering the Huskers. Lowther says his pitchers must locate their pitches better to win this semifinal.
Arch says the gameplan will be similar for pitchers Brooke Lawson and Lydia Althoff.
Both Lowther and Arch also acknowledged the teams experiences playing in summer ball have played a key part in helping them get to this point. The winner will take on the Sherwood vs. East Carter winner in Saturday’s state title game. Coverage of Friday’s game from the Killian Softball Complex gets underway at 12:45 on KRES and centralmoinfo.com. Scott Lunte has the call.
