OPELOUSAS – The Lakeside Warriors saw their season come to an end Tuesday at Opelousas Catholic, falling to the No. 5 seed in a heartbreaker, 5-3.
Lakeside led the game 3-0 until a disastrous five-run inning did them in.
“We had a good opportunity to win,” Lakeside head coach Will Gray said. “We had one bad inning. That’s where they beat us.”
Gray still credited his team for their resolve throughout the season.
“I’m still proud of the guys,” Gray said. “We started out in a hole at 1-9 and the kids worked hard to put it back together, winning I think 11 out of 15 games. They always play hard, and I’m proud of them for that.”
Cameron Gray had an RBI single to lead Lakeside, followed by Brayden Jones with an RBI. Dalton Crumpler had two singles to end his season. Tanner Page and Josh Prince each had singles to round out the Warrior offense.
Lakeside will bring back plenty of talent for next year.
“If we can bottle up what we feel right now and bring this into next season it can be good for this team,” Gray said. “With the group we have coming back, we should be a pretty good squad.”
