S&S Drops Game 1 without Two Suspended Starters

5-22-08 -- S&S Softball took on the Aubrey Lady Chaparrals tonight in Frisco for the Regional Championship series, missing two of their best players.

After an incident during the regional semifinals, pitcher Angela White and catcher Nikki Jones were suspended for tonights' game. The players were thrown out of game two in the series for allegedly throwing a pitch that was intended to hit the umpire.

Back up pitcher Megan Matlock took the reigns for the Rams. She struck out the side in the first inning and held the Chaps to zero runs until the 5th.

Aubrey went on a run the following innings, beating S&S 8-0.

Both White and Jones will be back on the field for the rest of the series. Game two and a possible game three takes place on Saturday at 1pm and 3pm in Frisco.

    For all the people that seem to have so much negative for these girls that have worked their butts off to get to this spot: go ahead talk about them but I have some advice: click your heels together and say I NEED A LIFE!! They worked hard and deserve to be able to have the joy of the accomplishment of making HISTORY in the school!!

    I just thought I'd comment on here since some people brought it to my attention that I apparently already had. I guess someone doesnt like me or wants the town of S&S to hate me...haha. But, no, I am Megan Mitchell. I guess there must be another Tom Bean pitcher, which technically when I was recovering from surgery there were 4 other girls who stepped up and took my place so maybe there is more than one Tom Bean pitcher. But that comment below was most likely to get people thinking it was me. It wasnt because I was at school working on the yearbook when that was posted. Anyway, Ive known Angela since she started taking pitching lessons and played together for a while. Shes a nice person. Sure, we pitchers dont always agree with the calls in a game, but I cant comment on this topic because I didnt witness it. I just wanted to clear my name from any rumors on here. Well S&S Im sorry your season just ended, but look how far youve come. Congrats! -Megan Mitchell (TB Pitcher from 2005-08)

    Sticking up for a teammate is admirable, but perhaps considering all of the circumstances, being anonomous is the way to go.

    After my friends, and starting pitcher & catcher wer ejected from the game, i felt Outraged. Then being ejected could have cost us the series. Yes the umpire was out to get angela from the start, yes he was unfair and talked to her inappropriately, NO it wouldnt be right if it was intentional. But ask formor players, i bet NOT one will say that they didnt ever hit an ump or atleast attempt it. Everyone makes mistakes, you forgive them. Angela and Nikki have the best attittuds and morals ive seen. I love them & would not trade them for anyone. Look around, EVERY PALYER in the world has said something negative before...DONT NAG on my teamates Because you didnt make it this far. WE'RE going to state, and if you have a problem, KMA!!! We've prooved our abilities so far, and were not EVEN close to being done. LET'S GO LADIES!!!

    Regardless of all the drama and adversity these fine Lady Rams had to face this week, I got to witness first hand that regardless of what people say or think they rose to the occasion and showed how they can overcome all you rude people who have nothing better to do that than attempt to put a team down. It saddens me to live in a county that has absolutely no respect for others. I can only assume you "negative" people must really not have a life or just REALLY JEALOUS! Whatever the case, the Lady Rams Softball team have just made history and they are headed to STATE with or without your support. Great job Girls! Keep your heads up high because all of you truly deserve it and have worked extremely hard! I am so very proud of all my adopted daughters! We are behind all of you every step of the way!!!!

    It is sad that teams can't just play a game and learn from mistakes. I promise if it was intentional it will probably not happen again and if it was a mistake then she will try harder not to do it again. I get so sick and tired of looking at comments on here from know it all's who have nothing better to do than to talk down on people and throw stones when they themselves live in a glass house. Everything will be fixed in this world when everyone starts using their brains and thinking before they act or say things. Way to go RUDE people. You have succeeded in making the world stay as bad as it is. As far as saying that S&S is full of bad sportsmanship I think that is a crock. When I went to school there most everyone would go church camp on Easter weekend and most of the time when it came to the sports the S&S church with S&S kids would win the sportsmanship award. Don't judge the whole team by a few loud fans. I remember that at every game in high school the other team would have a few.

    It doesn't matter what everyone on here thinks. All that matters is that S&S is going to state!!! Way to go girls! It took everyone (not just the pitcher and catcher) to get you to this point. Be proud of yourself and hold your heads up high. Good luck!!!

    I am a grandmother of two boys. Both involved in little league sports. We can hardly wait for them to progress to school athletics because of the referees and umpires. These are generally unpaid volunteer workers, so we have overlooked their bias and favoritism. My point is this. It is entirely possible that there really was a problem with the umpire believing he was hit on purpose. (favoritism exists) I believe that regardless of the circumstances that most of you are trying to verbally beat up a young person out of spite. You need to try and think how you would feel about all of these negative comments if they were about you. Go to the game and cheer for your favorite team. Don't try to win the game here. All you are doing is trying to destroy a girls life. Remember,do unto others as you would have them do to you.

    Not bad sportsmanship? Remember the girls locker room after a basketball game in Howe 2007? As for everyone's homecoming, Howe and Bells have seen alot of queens crowned the past few football seasons as well. Losing is no excuse for bad behavior.
