STARKVILLE - The Oak Hill Academy softball team has been in a giving mood lately.
In two conference games, the Lady Raiders surrendered three unearned runs in a 3-2 loss at Winston Academy and dropped a decision at Canton Academy after giving up five unearned runs.
â€śWe canâ€™t afford giving folks Christmas in August,â€ť Oak Hill softball coach Marion Bratton said.
The Lady Raiders were in a giving mood once again on Monday, letting a 6-4 lead slip away and lost to the Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers 10-6.
When South Panola and West Point kick off the 2011 season on Saturday, one can probably expect a lot of points to blow up the score board.
Given the history of these two teams, who last year scored an average of 45 and 29 points per game, respectively, Saturday may just be a shoot out.
