The Lady Eagles managed another run in the top of the fifth, but the Lady Rams padded their lead by two more in the bottom of the sixth and went on to the 7-2 win.
Grace Edmondson got the win on the mound and helped herself with a triple. Sydney Huffman got a double and Whittney Gee had a triple.
Game Two proved to be a much closer outing as the Lady Rams and Lady Eagles tied at 1-1 in th esecond and the Vardaman girls sent up by one in the third. The Lady Eagels tied it up in the sixth, forcing the extra inning and plated the winning run in the bottom of the eighth for the 3-2 win.

The Lady Rams headed back to Wheeler Monday to resume Game Three and didn’t lose any momentum over the break.

“We just rolled from there,” said Coach Billy Dill. “We hit the ball hard and Grace (Edmondson) pitched a really good game.”
