The Bulldogettes and Jim Ned Lady Indians played softball during high winds and dusty conditions for the entire game Wednesday in a matched that was postponed a day earlier because of severe weather conditions.
The Bulldogettes took control of the game early in the first inning. Cassie Grant drove a fly ball past third base for a triple and three RBI. The Coahoma senior wasn’t on base for long as Macee Grant hit a single off a 2-2 count bringing her in for the score.
Coahoma continued to hit well scoring runs in all five innings of the game while Bulldogette pitchers C. Grant and MaKynlee Overton were effective at keeping the Lady Indians off the bases.
Grant started on the mound and surrendered one run from three hits and struck out three over two innings. Overton came in to get the win allowing four runs from four hits and striking out one.
Madison Rodgers and Jaydan Mann both hit home runs during the game. Rodgers and Mann had two doubles each. Rodgers went 3-for-4 at the plate with four runs and three RBI. Mann was 3-for-3 with two runs and three RBI. Alex Bailey and Lexi Montelongo also had a double each. Macee Grant had multiple hits to help out the Bulldogettes.
