The Lady Lynx went toe-to-toe with Panguitch last Friday and barely clinched the win in the fifth inning!
The game was tied at six, with Fredonia batting in the bottom of the fifth when Naveya Estrada hit a double that allowed two scoring runs. Braxton Henderson pitched for seven innings, allowing nine runs on 14 hits and striking out five. Henderson also had a home run in the fifth inning – one of the runs that catapulted the Lynx into a game changing inning.
