Pierce County pushed across two runs in the top of the fourth breaking a 3-all tie en route to the four-inning win over the Lady Herons.
Mollie Ann Pitts (1-for-1) blooped a leadoff single to center. Autumn Smith’s ensuing sacrifice bunt was thrown away for a three-base error allowing Pitts to score the eventual game-winning run. Kaylee Cravey (1-for-2) followed with a run-scoring groundout with Smith scoring an insurance run.
Kadence Godwin, the fourth PCHS pitcher to work an inning, retired the side in order on three groundouts.

Brantley County tied the score in the bottom of the frame against Lauren Edgar. A one-out hit batter and consecutive walks loaded the bases. A fielder’s choice groundout and an error on the same play scored the runs.
PCHS went ahead 3-2 in the top of the third on a two-out wild pitch. Larson and LizAnn Hughes (1-for-2) laced consecutive two-out singles to keep the inning alive. Larson, who took third on Hughes’ single, scored on the wild pitch.
