The Cabot Lady Panthers had no problems with two games late last week.

Cabot beat Searcy 13-0 on Friday and Wynne 11-0 on Thursday.

The Searcy game was surprisingly close for four innings, with neither team scoring. Cabot finally broke through in the fifth inning with five runs thanks to singles from Lane Justus, Shauna Attendorn, Rachel Allgood and Molly Wood, to go with a double from Erin Eckert.

After a scoreless sixth, Cabot put the game away in the top of the seventh with eight runs. The Lady Panthers had five extra-base hits in the inning, including a pair of doubles by Attendorn. Kaitlyn Felder doubled in the inning, as did Allgood and Eckert. Allgood also had a single during the offensive explosion.

Lauren McCluskey got the start in the circle for Cabot and scattered four hits while striking out three. McCluskey also tossed a complete game shutout in the second game, this time giving up three hits over the mercy rule shortened five innings.

Against Wynne, Cabot’s offense started a little slowly again, going three up and three down in the bottom of the first inning. Things quickly picked up as the Lady Panthers scored three in the second inning, five in the third and three more in the fourth.

The Lady Panthers scored their three in the second inning on just one base hit. Macee Abbott walked, Lane Justus later reached on a fielder’s choice, followed by Attendorn knocking a single in the hole.

The bats were a little hotter in the third inning for Cabot. Heather Hill led off the inning with a single, followed by Wood reaching on an error. Abbott and Felder singled, while Brandyn Vines doubled and all came around to score in the inning.

Abbott led Cabot at the plate, going 2 for 2 with a single, double, walk and two runs. Felder finished 2 for 3 with a double, while Hill was 2 for 3 as well.
