Lady Bulldogs thump Tylertown

TYLERTOWN – The Franklin County Lady Bulldogs blanked Tylertown 15-0 Tuesday night in Region 7-3A fastpitch softball action.

“I am very proud of our girls’ effort tonight,” FCHS coach Sally Case. “Defensively we made plays and were error free. At the plate we found our stride and sharply put balls in play all night. We got key hits when we needed them, which we have struggled with. It looks like we are getting hot at the right time of the season.”

The Lady Bulldogs will return to action Saturday when they visit Loyd Star to play in the Lady Hornets’ softball tournament. Franklin County will face Wesson in the opener at 8:30 a.m. and play Lawrence County at 1 p.m.

Lady Bulldogs 15, Tylertown 0 

The Lady Bulldogs dominated the Lady Chiefs in a five-inning contest. Franklin County plated three runs in the first, four runs in the second, three runs in the third, one run in the fourth and scored four more runs in the fifth inning.

Emilee Wallace was the winning pitcher for the Lady Bulldogs. She allowed only one hit while collecting six strikeouts and had one walk.

Wallace was also the leader at the plate for Franklin County. She was three-for-three with a double. Cheyenne Higgs finished two-for-three with two doubles. Shelly Case was two-for-three with two singles. Chasney Green provided a double and Brandi O’Neal hit a single.
