As is often the case in softball as in life, plans can change in an instant.

As is often the case in softball as in life, plans can change in an instant.

This was the unfortunate case for the Ardmore Lady Tigers on Tuesday, who were scheduled to host a first-place showdown with Piedmont at the Ardmore softball field.

Unfortunately, unplayable field conditions forced the postponement of the contest, as it was instead moved to Piedmont.

The switch nearly came back to bite the Lady Wildcats as Ardmore held an early lead, but eventually was handed its first district loss 10-5 against Piedmont.

Ardmore will have its rematch at home now on Sept. 18. 

In the bottom of the second it was Piedmont earning the lead thanks to two runs.

But, the Lady Tigers soon found themselves even thanks to Lauren Blankenship in the top of the third when she slapped a two-RBI double to right field scoring Reagan Lewis and Angelina Bruner.

Makila Case then continued her recent power surge at the plate when she gave Ardmore the lead with an RBI single scoring Nakayla Coleman. 

Kalie Douglas made it 4-2 with an RBI single off a line drive to left field which scored Blankenship.

Ardmore appeared to have plenty of momentum in the top of the fourth when Avery Lowe gave the Lady Tigers a 5-2 lead with a sacrifice fly RBI which scored Lewis. 

Piedmont got a run back in the bottom half of the fourth to make it 5-3, but the worst was yet to come.

The Lady Wildcats managed to take the lead in the bottom of the fifth with three runs, before adding four more in the sixth.

Savannah Marris took the loss on the mound, allowing six earned runs on 10 hits with nine walks and three strikeouts.

Ardmore (13-7, 7-1) is scheduled to be back in action Thursday on the road against Pauls Valley.
