Bobcats falls to Dragons in Double Header
By: Leah Davis
On Thursday night, March 9, the Bobcats hosted the Dragons to a double header.
Pressure began to appear early as Travis Huffman walked up to home plate for the Dragons at the top of the first. Dominic Stephens hit a fly ball gaining a double RBI that put the Dragons over the Bobcats. Tension only grew as Jace Franklin batted in a single RBI soon after. The Bobcats fell behind the Dragons, 3-0, after the top of the first.
At the bottom of the first, McKinley Chadwick hit a double earning a single RBI that put the Bobcats on the board.
All seemed quiet until the third inning when Zack Moore hit a double gaining himself a single RBI and advancing the score, 4-1, over the Bobcats.
At the bottom of the sixth, Tatum Chadwick hit a single which allowed Will Barnes to sprint home. That single RBI for Chadwick put the Bobcats down one less point.
However, it wasn’t enough to close the gap, the final score of the first game was 4-2 with the Dragons winning over the Bobcats.
It seemed the Bobcats couldn’t recover from the first game as the Dragons managed to keep the Bobcat’s offense from gaining any runs in the second. The final score was 11-0.
Despite a heavy loss, the Bobcats will be back for redemption on March 17th against Ridgeland High School.
