HASKELL â€” The Harmony Grove Lady Cardinals battled through a rare close contest Monday. With a championship looming, the Lady Cards defeated the Perryville Lady Mustangs 2-1 to move their winning streak to 12 straight and captured the squadâ€™s second straight 5-3A District title.
â€śI am most proud of how we fought through a close game since we hadnâ€™t played one in a while, so it was nice to see how we were going to do,â€ť Head Coach Sammi Massey said. â€śIt took both pitchers today and both did a great job. We got timely hits where we needed them and played defense when we had to.â€ť
