They scored one in the top of the third, five in the fourth to break the game open, and one in the top of the fifth and sixth innings. The Tigerettes did try to rally scoring one run in the bottom of the sixth but it just wasn’t enough. Final score MCHS 4 Friendship Christian 8.
Becca Ballou went 4 for 4 and scored one run. Mary Belton went 2 for 3 with two RBIs while Sara Kittrell picked up the other two RBIs. Senior Chelsea pitched well enough to win, going all seven innings and giving up 11 scattered hits with only one earned run.
