The Lady Indians softball team, following up on an 8-0 victory a week ago over the Hancock Lady Hawks, will host Our Lady Academy this afternoon.
Every Lady Indians player had a hand in the Hancock victory, according to Biloxi coach Tommy Johnson, who noted that the team has been playing error-free ball.
"Everyone that played last night contributed something positive," Johnson said. "It was about as complete of a game that any coach could ask for."
Biloxi pitcher Brittany Lang dominated the Hancock hitters, striking out nine while only allowing one hit.
Johnson credited the play of his teamís defense in allowing Lang to pitch freely. "All Iíve asked of our defense is to make the routine plays, and so far, they have done that," Johnson said. "We've now played 15 straight innings without an error. "
The Lady Indians crossed the plate six times in the fifth to put the game away. Every Biloxi starter picked up at least one hit.
