A large crowd came out in support of the Tide on a beautiful evening for baseball, but the Panthers proved a worthy opponent as Minden fell 7-5.

The Crimson Tide battled hard despite the loss, but a pair of early mistakes proved costly in the end. A baserunning error ended a promising inning after a Tider got hung up between third and second base. Then in the following inning, a bases loaded balk brought in an unearned run. The potential two-run swing was a dagger to any early momentum it seemed the Tide were building.

Minden will get back to work in the Natchitoches Central tournament this weekend, beginning Friday with a doubleheader at 3:30 and 6 p.m. The Tide take on Southwood in game one and Leesville in the nightcap.
