The Leopards simply fell short on Friday night against Spring Creek with the final score ending at 6-4.


Lakewood turned up the heat by scoring 3 runs in the 7th inning. The Leopards took advantage of errors made by the Gators, and really started putting the bat on the ball. Unfortunately, this fuse was short lived, as three outs were called and the game was over, but Lakewood is still continuing to grow as a team.


Lakewood’s head coach, Raymond Spell, said “We played 2 innings of baseball, the 1st and the 7th inning. There were 5 innings in between that we didn’t show up for. We just quit playing and that’s what cost us the game.”


Ross Strickland started for the Leopards, and he pitched 2 2/3rds innings. Zack tanner came in and finished out the game.


Batting stats for the Leopards were unavailable.


Lakewood is traveling to Rosewood on Tuesday, and they now hold a record of 6-9 overall
