Bogue leads West Union over South Pontotoc

Bailey Bogue had three hits, including a base-clearing triple in the sixth inning of West Union’s 10-5 win over South Pontotoc on Thursday.

Ahead 7-5, Bogue’s insurance hit with bases loaded capped the four-hit inning for the Lady Eagles, helping them earn their third win of the season.

The Lady Cougars built an early 4-0 lead after three innings thanks to two doubles from Anna Roberts. Michelle Gregory and Kaitlyn Cox also had RBI hits, and it would take West Union until the bottom of the third to score their first points.

The Lady Eagles cut their deficit to only one after a four-hit third inning, including a double by Danielle Taylor. West Union would take the lead in the fourth off a single by Julianna Garner, and Leah Paige Goolsby scored Garner later on her double.

Hannah McQuary made it a 7-5 game with her single in the sixth, and the Lady Eagles loaded the bases preceding Bogue’s triple.

Bogue finished the day 3-of-4 and Goolsby, Taylor and Garner each had two hits a piece for West Union (3-1).

Roberts finished 3-of-4 with two doubles for South Pontotoc, while Jala Parker went 2-of-4.

 The Lady Eagles will travel to South Pontotoc this weekend for the Lady Cougars’ tournament.
