(DeQUEEN) The Mena Bearcats baseball team travelled to DeQueen and the Leopards in a critical conference game, as the high school playoffs are fast approaching.
DeQueen jumped out to a 2-0 lead, before the bats started to come alive for the Bearcats and tying the contest in the 2nd inning.
The Leopards then jumped out with a three run insurance inning in the 3rd, as a big RBI double was hit that drove in three runs and the Leopards went up 5-2.
But, Mena wasn’t done yet. They bounced back and went ahead in the 5th inning to take a 6-5 lead. DeQueen tied it up later and then both teams tightened up before the Leopards finally won the slugfest, 8-7, in eight innings.
Mena drops to 5-14 overall and 1-8 in the 4A-7 Conference. DeQueen improves to 8-8 overall and 4-7 in the Conference.
