PSJA Memorial holds off San Benito 8-6 to even opening-round series

SAN BENITO — The Lady Greyhounds might have started the scoring, but it was the PSJA Memorial Lady Wolverines who finished it.

After losing Game 1 of the their best-of-three Class 6A bi-district series on Thursday 11-2, the Lady Wolverines came into Friday night’s contest with a chip on their shoulder and then turned it into a 8-6 victory over the Lady Greyhounds.

Game 3 will be played at PSJA Memorial at 2 p.m. today.

“We had a lot of confidence coming in,” said head coach Gilberto Rodriguez. “I told my team that if we eliminate yesterday’s mistakes then we can win this game and we can be successful. In the bus I told the girls that it’s one pitch at a time and one hit at a time and we can make it happen.

“These girls believed in themselves and I’m proud of these girls. They made it happen.”
