After a disappointing game one in Lubbock, West Texas High was trying to rebound in game two in Canyon Monday night. It just didnâ€™t seem to be in the cards for the Lady Comanches this year.

Then, in the fifth inning, right fielder Taylor Kirksey, injured her ankle sliding into second and left the game. Things fell apart from there, and they lost the game 13-6.
