EARLY — Weather permitting, the Early Lady Horns will open their own softball tournament today, just two days after picking up a 17-13 victory at Stephenville in their first game of the year.

In today’s action, the Lady Horns (1-0) will face the Abilene JV at 12:45 p.m. at Early High School. At 4:45 p.m., the Lady Horns will face either Cisco or Santo, depending of the result of Early’s game and the 11 a.m. Cisco-Santo contest.

The winners of those two games will square off, as will the losers. The Abilene JV will play again in the 3 p.m. game

In action at the Early City Park, Merkel will face Evant and Stephenville will battle Anson at 11 a.m., while Glen Rose tangles with the San Angelo Lake View JV and Abilene Wylie squares off with Brady at 12:45 p.m.

The winners of the two games at the Early City Park will meet at 4:45 p.m., and the losers will battle at 3 p.m.

Bracket play begins Friday, and Thursday’s results will have no bearing on the draw.
