KFBD Sports For Tuesday August 31

IT’S PROBABLY A GOOD THING THE FRISCO LEAGUE SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT WAS HELD NORTH OF I-44 TO START PLAY YESTERDAY, OR ROUND ONE COULD STILL BE A PENDING ISSUE…
THE TOURNAMENT OPENED AT DIXON’S NEW PARK YESTERDAY AND ROUND ONE IS IN THE BOOKS..
IBERIA HAS THE 1 SEED AND A FIRST ROUND BYE..
2ND SEED DIXON NEEDED ONLY 4 INNINGS TO SEND NEWBURG TO THE CONSOLATION SIDE IN A 15-0, NO HIT SHUT OUT BY MADDIE RYAN WHO FANNED 11 AND WALKED ONE…
DIXON OPENED WITH A 4 RUN FIRST, WENT QUIETLY IN THE 2ND, THEN TACKED ON 4 MORE IN THE 3RD AND A 7 RUN 4TH ENDED IT ON THE RUN RULE.
TRISTEN LIPSCOMB, MADDIE RYAN, AND ABBY OVERSHON EACH HAD 2 HITS…ONE OF LIPSOMB’S WAS A TRIPLE, RYAN HOMERED AND DROVE IN 3 RUNS, AND OVERSHON HAD 2 RBI’S….

6TH SEED LAQUEY GETS BY RICHLAND 5-4…. Aurora Rice PICKS UP THE WIN IN THE CIRCLE…..THE COACH SAID “we hit by committee!”

THAT SENDS THE 3 AND 4 SEEDS TO THE CONSOLATION SIDE WHILE THE 5 AND 6 CAN FAR NO WORSE THAN 4TH…

The Power Five conferences have made it clear: If you can’t play due to COVID-19, you will take a loss. The SEC became the latest to announce its cancellation policy on Monday with a forfeit mandate similar to the rest of the Power Five. The policy will hand a forfeit to any team that is unable to play due to COVID-19 issues, while assigning a win in the conference standings to the team able to play. The SEC also will consider financial reimbursement to any team whose game was canceled through no fault of its own.

If both teams are unable to play due to the pandemic, they will be issued losses in the conference standings. In that way, the SEC’s rule, which applies to all sports, is similar to the ACC’s regarding double forfeits.
