    As I watched Game 6 of the Preds game Monday night, I had an epiphany of becoming what I’ve always hated: fairweather fans. I want to use this platform to finally admit that I, Ben Briley, am a fairweather Nashville Predators fan. I have not watched one regular season game, kept up with who got traded where, I couldn’t tell you who had the most goals this season, but when my hometown hockey team is in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, I haven’t missed a game.

    Tuesday night’s game between Sunbright and the Lady Bobcats looked more like an all-star homerun derby rather than a win or go home district tournament game as between the two teams there were six over the fence dingers with the Lady Tigers defeating OS by a final score of 13-10.

    Sunbright jumped out to an early lead as Ashlin Trent was the first to go deep as the Lady Tigers took an 8-1 lead. Oliver Springs struggled defensively as Desirae Davis and Kaitlyn Seeber took turns on the mound.
