Offense sputters in shutout loss at Hallsville

Offense sputters in shutout loss at Hallsville
Fayette’s defense showed a dramatic improvement Friday night in its season opener at Hallsville. From one year to the next, the Falcons nearly cut in half the points it allowed against the Indians.
The offense, however, struggled to match that same level of improvement. The Falcons had the ball in Hallsville territory on eight different offensive drives, but they failed to score in any one of them. Fayette lost to the Indians 28-0 to begin the 2015 season.


Fayette softball wins home opener over La Plata

Fayette softball wins home opener over La Plata
Fayette softball head coach Mike James has said in the past that one bad inning always seems to cost his team in their close losses. That theme of “one bad inning” returned Monday night in the Lady Falcons’ home opener against La Plata.
Fayette surrendered five runs in the fifth inning to La Plata, and sure enough, it was the one bad inning of the game. This time, however, the inning didn’t cost Fayette the game.
That’s because Fayette had already scored six runs earlier in the contest. The Lady Falcons then shut down La Plata in the final two innings to secure a 6-5 win.

California edges Fayette in consolation final
Sometimes the breaks go your way, and other times they do not.
Fayette caught a break last year in the last inning of the consolation final of the Marshall Tournament, overcoming a late deficit to beat Warsaw by a run. On Saturday, the Lady Falcons were in a similar situation, trailing California in the final inning of the tournament’s consolation final.
This time, the breaks did not go Fayette’s way. The Lady Falcons picked up a run in the last inning but left the tying run stranded on second base, falling to the Lady Pintos 4-3.
