It was the fourth straight setback for the Lady Tigers, who fell to 5-11 on the season.

The visiting Lady Panthers scored 17 runs over their final two at-bats to break open what was a close game.
Excel had just a 4-2 lead headed into the top of the fourth inning where it erupted for nine runs. The Lady Panthers made sure the game would end early on the 10-run rule when they tacked on eight more runs in the fifth to lead 21-3 at that point.
Leslie Nalty, who took the loss, and Natalie Neal both had a pair of hits to lead the Lady Tigers. Brandi Kennedy, Janel McCorvey and Taylor Guthrie all added one.
