Amber-Pocasset wins Grady County softball tournament

— The Amber-Pocasset High School slow-pitch softball team won the Grady County Tournament, which the Panthers hosted, on Monday in Amber.

The Lady Panthers beat Dibble 18-3 in the first round, Verden 7-6 in the second round and shut out Rush Springs 8-0 in the finals.

With the three wins in a row, Am-Po is now 7-4 this season, with a rematch at Rush Springs coming up at 4 p.m. Thursday.

In the first game against Dibble, the Lady Panthers scored 11 runs in the fifth inning.

In the second game, Verden made a comeback in the fourth inning by scoring four runs, but Amber-Pocasset scored two in the fourth and one in the fifth to win the only game of their tournament that was in any doubt.

The Lady Panthers blew the third game open with a seven-run outburst in the third inning.

Verden beat Union City 12-3 in the first round, and recovered from the Am-Po loss with a 13-2 win over Alex.

Rush Springs beat Minco 15-0 and Alex 11-0 in the Lady Redskins' other two games.
