Bobcats beat West Lincoln

Published 9:50 am Friday, September 9, 2016

Four errors by the opposing team and 20 hits from your starting lineup is usually more than enough to win a game.

Such was the case for the Bogue Chitto Bobcats slow-pitch softball team on Thursday as they got solid at-bats throughout their lineup to come out of their game against West Lincoln 12-1. The Bobcats improve to 5-3 with the victory, with the Bears falling to 3-4.

“The girls did a fantastic job tonight,” Bogue Chitto head coach Scott Leggett said. “We hit well and scored every inning and we need to keep up this momentum moving into district play next week.”
