There are some impressive come from behind wins in all sports, but what the McCurdy High School softball team pulled off on Tuesday was remarkable.  In game two of a doubleheader with Laguna Acoma, the Bobcats gave up 15 runs in the first inning.  After surrendering two more runs the following inning, It was  17-0 when McCurdy came to bat in the second inning.  That’s when the comeback started.  McCurdy scored 8 in the second, then another 5 runs in the third inning.  The Bobcats gave up a few more runs to Laguna Acoma along the way, followed by five more by McCurdy, making it a 21-18 ballgame in the 5th inning.  But the Bobcats were not done scoring.  The McCurdy players drove in four more runs to win the game 22-21, coming back from 17-runs down to win the game.

“Both teams played their hearts out and gave it their all,” said McCurdy head coach Joseph Valdez.  “In the last 6 years I’ve coached McCurdy, I’ve never seen anything like it.”

The 17-run comeback was the second double-digit deficit the Bobcats recovered from that day.  In game one of their doubleheader with Laguna Acoma, McCurdy was down 13-2 and rallied to win 20-15.  The Bobcats improved to 4-8 on the year and will play Pecos in a doubleheader on Friday.
