Score an assist to Mother Nature.

In a game stretched over three days because of inclement weather, the Big Spring Lady Steers used early and late offensive explosions to claim their District 5-3A softball opener, 11-9, against the Sweetwater Lady Mustangs Monday at the Big Spring ISD Softball complex.

When the game began Friday evening, it appeared Big Spring (12-13 overall, 1-0 in district play) would breeze to a victory, plating six runs in the first two innings. However, a combination of Sweetwater offense and Lady Steers defensive miscues allowed the Lady Mustangs to close to within 7-6 in the fourth inning.

That's when Mother Nature intervened — lightning in the vicinity of the park forced officials to suspend the game until Monday.

Considering the Lady Steers were figuratively holding on by their fingernails at that point, a break was just what the doctor ordered.
