BOGUE CHITTO – The Bogue Chitto Lady Cats managed to shake off the rust to capture a 6-5 victory over the Stringer Lady Red Devils in Game One of the Class 1A South State Championship Monday afternoon in softball action.
“The girls did a great job battling back,” said BC coach Scot Leggett. “You can really tell that we were very rusty after being off for nine days. Now, we need to refocus and take care of business at Stringer.”
The Lady Cats (26-6) will be in action today as they travel to Stringer to take on the Lady Red Devils for Game Two. The contest is set to start at 5 p.m. If a Game Three is needed it will start 20 minutes after the conclusion of Game Two.
