The Lady Cats kicked off their season at home with a big win as they came out swinging in the first inning to take an early 2-0 lead.

Bogue Chitto continued their strong hitting attack in the second, third and fourth innings to extend their lead to 7-0 in four innings of action, before ending the contest in the sixth inning by plating three more runs to earn a 10-0 victory on the mercy-rule.

The Lady Cobras’ offense came out swinging to start the contest, but was unable to get their hits to fall against BC’s tough defense.

“It is tough to win games by hitting pop-ups to a good defensive team like Bogue Chitto,” said Nunnery. “My girls did play hard, but we are not hitting the ball like we should right now.”
