SHREVEPORT – At Evangel, the Lakeside Warriors fought hard but couldn’t overcome the firepower from the Eagles on their way to a 9-5 loss.
Lakeside fell behind early and had a tough time slowing down the Evangel attack. The Eagles scored five combined runs in the first and second inning while the Warriors had a tough time at the plate.
Josh Prince wasn’t having a tough day however, he went 3-4 with a pair of singles and a double to lead the Warriors. Brayden Jones and Colton Carter each had two singles and RBIs. Logan McIver had two hits also, followed by Jake Gray with a double and Tanner Page with a RBI.
Lakeside sent three different pitchers to the mound to try and limit the potent Evangel lineup.

Tanner Page threw the final two innings for the Warriors, striking out two, walking two and allowing three hits.
Prince now boasts a .429 batting average, however as a team Lakeside is hitting .277.
