Over the last 25 years, the Brusly-Parkview rivalry has produced some of high school softball’s fiercest battles.
Many of those games went into extra innings with close final scores; however, none of those descriptions applied to Thursday’s game. The Lady Panthers crushed Parkview in a 14-2 victory.
“They weren’t having their best game of the year, and we were,” said Coach Beau Bouvier. “We just kept extending the score and never let up.”
Even with starting pitcher Carli Jo LeBlanc out for the past two weeks due to surgery, Brusly hasn’t missed a beat. Camryn Comeaux has stepped up to the mound and delivered for the Lady Panthers.
After dominating Parkview, Brusly went on to overpower Westside rival Port Allen 19-0 Friday.
This week, the Lady Panthers will play at home Tuesday against 1A stronghold St. John for Senior Night and at home Wednesday against 5A powerhouse Dutchtown.
“We just have to keep on working hard at practice,” said Bouvier about preparing for their upcoming games.
Brusly is currently fourth in power rankings, but the playoff brackets will be announced officially Thursday.
