The humiliating second inning – which was totally uncharacteristic for this year’s Lady Bears team – saw defensive errors and mental mistakes on the part of Ava and solid line drive hits and even an inside-the-park home run by Rogersville.
Ava shortstop Kiaunna Snow was 1-for-3 in the abbreviated game with a run scored. Ava’s junior first baseman Taylor George was 1-for-2 with two RBIs.
Second baseman Ashton Bewley had an RBI and a run scored and designated player Liz Jelowdar was 1-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI.
Substitute runners Serena Stewart and Shantel Nagel each scored runs for Ava.
