Kyla Henderson hit a double for BHS and Madi Miller hit a home run. Miller finished 4-for-4 with four RBIs. Emma Campbell had three hits for the Lady Panthers. Kat Wallace and Caroline Speaks also hit safely for Brookhaven.
Meg Foster got the win in the circle after giving up one hit and one earned run in three innings. Kaysha Register started the game and allowed two hits and two unearned runs on 25 pitches.
Brookhaven travels to Salem Thursday night to face the Lady Wildcats. The junior varsity begins play at 5 p.m.
The Wesson Lady Cobras (5-1-1) defeated Tylertown 14-0 Tuesday night. It was the second win of the week for Coach Michelle Nunnery as her crew took down Warren Central 8-5 Monday.
Tuesday the Lady Cobras got a triple from Natalie Bonds to lead their offense. Anna Claire Crow and Bods had two hits apiece. Bre Westbrook, Chloee McManus, Laynee Crapps, Shaylin Green and Shelbi Maxwell all hit safely for the Lady Cobras.
Crapps picked up the win after striking out 11 of the 16 batters she faced. She gave up three hits in four innings.
