The Bobcats scored all three of their runs in the first inning. It was Abrianna Green’s base clearing double that initially put the Bobcats on the board. She would then score on an error later in the inning. 

The Lady Bobcats were able to chase Mars Hill starting pitcher Olivia Stegall after just five batters. 

Mars Hill’s one run came in the third inning on an error that would score Stegall. The loss puts Mars Hill Bible in the loser’s side of the bracket against Ashford. 

Beulah will now face Plainview in the second round Wednesday evening with an opportunity to go to the championship round on the line.
