Published 11:50 am Wednesday, May 9, 2018

After falling to Claiborne earlier in the evening May 9, West Greene had to quickly get back up to play a very good Panthers team. Cumberland Gap rushed ahead early and at one time led 9-2. It looked good for the Panthers to advance until a late comeback attempt by the Buffaloes had the home fans uneasy. It was then the lights on the field went off with two outs in the final inning. At one point after the lights came back on the Panthers needed only one strike. The Buffs connected with a game winning, two RBI walk off hit and the stunned Panther fans went from elation to heartbreak seeing their team fall 10-9. The loss eliminated the Panthers from the 2018 tournament. Here are some photos, please enjoy and look for more on the website and in print soon.
