The Lady Jackets added two more runs in the second inning as Lilliott got a 1-out double, went to third on a Parlor single and scored on Metts’ ground out as pinch runner Addison Brewer advanced to second. Laisa Hernandez then singled to right scoring Brewer to make it 11-0.
Jeff Davis’ final run came in the third as Underwood and Poole started things with consecutive singles and both moved up a base as Maeleigh Burns grounded out to second. Underwood came home as Lilliott grounded out to first.
Miles had the hot bat for the Lady Jackets as she went 3-for-3 at the plate with a trio of singles. Lilliott singled and doubled and drove in three runs, Underwood had a pair of singles and an RBI, Poole singled twice, Metts and Hernandez both had a single and two RBIs, and Wood and Parlor each had a single and an RBI.

In the Coffee game, the Lady Jackets got all their runs in the fourth inning.
Poole opened the inning with a walk and, an out later, Lilliott doubled to push Poole to third.

With two outs, Hernandez plated Lilliott with a bunt single as Sellers advanced to third. Miles followed with a 2-run double to give JD its four runs.
After the Lady Trojans got their second run in the bottom of the fourth, Parlor retired nine of the next 10 batters, five by strikeout to preserve the 2-run victory.
Jeff Davis managed only five runs, three of which came in the fourth. Miles’ 2-run double was the big hit of the game. Lillian doubled, Hernandez had a bunt single and an RBI, and Wood and Underwood both singled.
