What about the 57th district? Johnson Central, Magoffin Co, Sheldon Clark, Paintsville and Lawrence County made for one of the toughest districts when it came to girls basketball. That statement could possibly hold true for softball as well. Monday night Paintsville defeated Sheldon Clark by the score of 6-4 and Tuesday night had a match-up with Johnson Central. Lawrence County faced Magoffin County and was able to take care of business 9-1.
But the focus was the Lady Eagles taking on the Lady Tigers. During the regular season, Johnson Central defeated Paintsville pretty handily 6-0 and 14-1 in the two contest. But anyone who watches sports knows when it comes to rivalries, it is extremely tough to beat a team three times in a season.
Well Tuesday night was the night for the Lady Tigers as they defeated Johnson Central 3-2 knocking the Lady Eagles out of postseason play.
Lawrence County will now meet up with Paintsville in the finals of the 57th district tournament to be played Thursday night at 6:30pm.
