When the Alabama High School Athletic Association state softball tournament’s final game was washed out on a Saturday evening after a full afternoon and evening of thunderstorms, the game was rescheduled two days later in the new Choccolocco Park in Oxford.

Certainly, the reason given had to do with the location of the park with regard to the two teams in the Class 5A finals, Scottsboro and Springville. But even casual observers could recognize the advantages of playing in the sparkling new sports complex in Calhoun County as opposed to traveling back to Montgomery and playing in a 40-year-old facility.

LAMP’s magical run through the Class 4A playoff bracket came to a crashing halt at the hands of the defending state champions as the Golden Tigers ran out of gas and out of pitching on Friday afternoon at Paterson Field.

After battling UMS-Wright evenly through the first two games of the best-of-three semifinal series, the Tigers surrendered 11 unearned runs in an 18-0 loss to the Bulldogs that ended the season but did little to dampen their status as the region’s best team by reaching the semifinal round.

After watching their ace get rocked for 10 hits in the opener, LAMP fans wondered whether their team could bounce back in the second game of the best-of-three semifinal series against UMS-Wright at Paterson Field.

Philip Julian and his Golden Tigers teammates were up to the challenge, turning back the Bulldogs 4-1 in a showcase of pitching and defense that evened the series and forced a third and deciding game on Friday at 11 a.m. at Paterson Field.
