Wolves sweep doubleheader over Southwest

It’s almost eerie how similar the script was for Co-Lin’s sweep of Southwest Mississippi C.C. Wednesday in Wesson when compared to the first meeting between the schools back on Feb. 3 in their opener.

Just like in that first meeting, Co-Lin won a high scoring opener — this time by a 15-12 final. And just like in that earlier series, Co-Lin cruised to a win in game two by taking an 11-1 victory.

In that first meeting Co-Lin took game one 10-9 and the nightcap 5-1.

The Wolves have now won 11 straight over their rivals from Summit.

In game one, Southwest built an 8-2 lead after three innings.

In the fifth, the Wolves pulled to within 11-9 on a grand slam by infielder Tom Biggs. Biggs is an LSU transfer who prepped at West Monroe High School.

It was a 3-run home run by Will Lawson Harkins (Leake Academy) that tied the game at 12-12.

Another longball put the Wolves ahead for good when Peyton Parker led the seventh off with a solo homer.

Lane Hanna (Union High) picked up the pitching win in relief.

In game two, it was Marquez Hudson (Lawrence County) who punched one over the Sullivan Field fence for the Wolves. His two-run homer in third was part of a six-run inning for CLCC.

Parker — a sophomore from West Ouachita High School — picked up the win on the mound in game two. He only gave up three hits and struck out seven.

Co-Lin hosts East Mississippi Saturday for a doubleheader that begins at 2 p.m.
