District play is always filled with surprises, both good and bad.

The Plainview Lady Indians unfortunately were on the wrong end of one of these occurrences Monday afternoon against Byng.

Despite tying the game late in the top of the sixth inning, the Lady Indians were undone by four Lady Pirate runs in the bottom half of the inning, leading to a 12-9 defeat at Byng.

The loss is the first for the Lady Indians in district play, dropping them into second place at 4-1 while falling to 10-7 overall.

Byng took the lead in the first inning with three runs before Plainview came back in the top of the second.

Brinkley Campbell got Plainview on the board with an RBI single to center field, before Jenna Jennings registered a sacrifice RBI to put the Lady Indians within one at 3-2.

Byng however wasn’t interested in an early comeback, as the Lady Pirates added five more runs in the bottom half of the second to increase their lead to 8-2.

But, the Lady Indians did have a response in the top of the third when Riley Grant got an RBI single to center, putting the score at 8-3. 

Brooke Castillo then registered a fielders choice RBI to make it 8-4, before Campbell came back with a hard ground ball which resulted in an error, allowing 

Logan Lee to score. 

Plainview finally was able to even the score in the top of the sixth through a pair of RBI doubles from Grant and Castillo.

Once again though, Byng was a step ahead, as the Lady Pirates scored four more runs in the bottom half of the sixth to break the game wide open again at 12-8.

Leah Selensky managed to bring home a run in the top of the seventh when her ground ball resulted in an error allowing Lexi Hackney to score, but the rally eventually fell short.
