The Lady Cobras of Wesson put another win on their record Thursday night as they defeated the North Pike Lady Jaguars 2-1 in seven innings.

Coach Michelle Nunnery’s Lady Cobras have made an impressive showing across the slow pitch softball season. Coming off Thursday night’s victory, Wesson sports a 12-5 record.

Four of their five losses came at home, including two during a tournament. Three of those defeats were only by one run. The biggest loss came against Lawrence County two weeks ago and ended with only two runs against LC’s 13.

But with only three exceptions, all of Wesson’s wins have been by a significant margin. The other three have been one-point victories — but were victories, nonetheless. The Lady Cobras’ biggest embarrassment may have come at the hands of Lawrence County, but they handed LC two shut-out losses of their own, with scores of 7-0 and 8-0 back-to-back to begin the season. A 15-0 shut-out and a shut-out of 19-0 came later against South Pike and Hazlehurst, respectively.

“We’ve done well,” Nunnery said. “We could have done better, but we’ve done well overall.”

The North Pike fight was a pitchers’ game, said Nunnery, with both teams pitching high and deep.

“We might have had more runs otherwise,” she said.

Wesson plays next in the Brookhaven High School tournament Saturday, with a 10:30 a.m. start against Warren Central. They’ll take the field again at 1 p.m. against Bogue Chitto.
