BCHS looked to avenge their worst loss of the season, an 8-0 shutout in Ellaville to Schley County last month, when they welcomed the Lady Cats to Cochran. Though they missed some scoring opportunities, they got enough timely hitting to win.

Leading 3-0 in the third, BC loaded the bases with one out but didnít score. Schley scored one in the fourth. The Lady Cats got the leadoff batter on in the fifth, but a lineout to Emily Sanders, who quickly tossed to Caroline Thrower at first, doubled off the runner. In the home half, Bailey Odom hit her first career home run, a two-run shot. A Lady Cat run in the sixth was answered by a Riley Edge RBI single in the home half.
