In their second game of the day in the Class 3A state playoffs, Beulah softball fell to the Plainview Bears 10-3. 

The Bobcats struggled to get runs across the plate. Beulah scored all three of their runs in the bottom of the third inning, but they were not able to capitalize after that point in the game. 

Brandy Phillips started the game in the circle for the Bobcats, but she was not able to replicate the success she had in the first game. Phillips was pulled in the third inning after allowing seven hits.

The Bears’ power was a problem for Beulah. Chloe Hatch and Hannah Regula each hit home runs in the game. The two accounted for five of Plainview’s 10 runs. 

The top two hitters in the order for Beulah once again put on a stellar performance. Phillips and Libby Buchanan accounted for half of Beulah’s hits in the game. 

Beulah will fight to stay alive as they face either Piedmont or Danville later today in the loser’s bracket pending the outcome of their matchup.
