KHSAA Softball, Saturday

What a Friday it was at the Rawlings/KHSAA State Softball Tournament at Owensboro's Jack C. Fisher Park! But I'm so disappointed that "The Mayor Jack" doesn't appear to have caught on.

Here is today's schedule: 

9 a.m. Central

Game 27: Boyle County vs. Louisville Mercy, Red Field
Game 28: Bowling Greenwood vs. Lone Oak, Green Field

11 a.m.

Game 29: Game 27 loser vs. Game 28 winner, Red Field

1 p.m.

Game 30: Game 27 winner vs. Game 29 winner, Red Field

(These two teams will play again immediately on the Red Field if Game 27 winner loses Game 30.)

Forecast calls for mix of clouds and sun, high of 90 degrees, bit of a breeze today. It's going to be a fun and beautiful drive home to Bowling Green, Danville, Lone Oak or Louisville this afternoon.


  1. Oh, my! Lone Oak 2, Greenwood 1 in eight innings as the Lady Gators' star pitcher, Elizabeth Moss, comes back from her back injury.

  2. In winners' bracket, Mercy whips Boyle County, 8-0.

  3. The Purple Flash leave runners on first and third in the fourth ... remains 1-1 ...

  4. Lone Oak ends up beating Boyle County, 3-2. Now the Purple Flash are fighting uphill against Mercy. It's 4-0 in the third. Lone Oak would have to come back in this game--and then beat Mercy again in order to claim the state championship.

  5. Lone Oak got within 4-2 in the top of the sixth, but Mercy answered with three runs in the bottom half. The Purple Flash need five runs in the next half inning to extend their state-championship hopes.

  6. Henderson County didn't make the tournament, but an umpire from Henderson did--along with his late father. "I really believe he was with me."
