Lady Liberators softball hosted three games in the second half of this week. As the team looked to turn their season around for a late postseason push, they fell short of their opponents. On Thursday, Sept. 28, Bolivar hosted the Kickapoo Chiefs. This has become a match-up known for being physical and filled with great play. However, by the end of the 4th inning, Bolivar was down 4-3. The Lady Liberators could not consistently get hits throughout the contest. Kickapoo put up nine runs in the next two innings as their offense outplayed Bolivar’s defense. After the poor defensive performance, the bats fell silent for the Liberators, failing to record a run and only having 3 hits in the final 4 innings. It was an unexpected outcome for a Bolivar team that has seen major improvements throughout the year.
