The Lady Cobras pulled out the win against the Lady Chiefs Tuesday night in a close game. Cheyenne Gladden started off the game with a double play from second base, but the Lady Chiefs managed put the first point on the scoreboard after getting on base from a fielding error.

Wesson’s defense came back strong and kept Tylertown from running the bases and adding anymore runs.

Lady Cobras’ pitcher, Carrie McSweyn, threw five strikeouts and fielded two outs. Top hitter sophomore Sabria Green hit a homerun in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the score, which gave the Lady Cobras the momentum to stay in the game.

“It felt good,” commented Green. “”I had to get on it to pump up the team.”

The winning run was brought in by a double hit by seventh grade catcher Catherine Wilson in the bottom of the seventh inning to seal the win for Wesson.

Wilson commented after the win, “It felt great and I’m proud of everybody.”

Wesson’s top fielder was another seventh grader, Riley Smith, who had five outs on first base.

Lady Chiefs’ pitcher, Gianca Holmes, pitched six strikeouts and four walks. Top hitter for the Lady Chiefs was Oliviyah Beard who hit the single to bring in the one run for Tylertown.
