Neal battled back and got to 9-8 with runners at the corners with two outs, but hit a line drive to shortstop to end the game with a one-run loss.
“I’m proud of the way our team battled,” W.S. Neal Lady Eagle head coach Jeff Haney said. “They got down on multiple occasions and never gave up. It is a long season and we will come together and overcome this little stumble. I also want to give credit to Atmore for their effort in the game. They are much improved from last season.”
