The Princeton Lady Tigers played some of their finest softball of the season, but came up one run short on Tuesday night, losing to Grand River Conference rival Maysville by a final score of 3-2.

Princeton opened the scoring with a pair of runs in the top of the first inning, with Rachelle Parks and Maddie Enright scoring, driven home by Parks and Shaylee Henley. That would be the only offense that Princeton would muster on the night, as Maysville tied the game at 2 in the bottom of the second inning, and scored a single tally in the bottom of the fifth for the winning margin.

The loss left a bitter taste in the mouth of the Princeton girls, who had a golden opportunity to tie the game in the seventh, as Ashton Summers doubled and moved to third on a ground-out. Trinity Kile reached base on a squeeze bunt, but the Lady Tigers lost a runner on the bases on what Coach Mayfield called a "very iffy call", and the next batter struck out to end the game. Coach Mayfield added, "This was the best game that we have played all year. We played an amazing game defensively and offensively."

Princeton, which lost 11-3 to King City last Thursday night, before being rained out on Monday night at Milan, now sits at 5-4 overall, and 2-3 in the Grand River Conference.

There was a bit of good news for Lady Tiger fans from Tuesday night however, as the Lady Tiger JV won a slugfest, 11-10, highlighted by freshman Taylor Holdsted hitting one out of the park for a home run.

Most area softball games were rained out on Tuesday night, area scores included:

Westran 11, Slater 1 (6 innings)
Putnam County 14, North Shelby 0 (3 innings)
Bevier 16, LaPlata 0
