Middle School Softball: Oakwood Christian falls at CCS
The Oakwood Christian Middle School Lady Eagles scored first last Tuesday, but couldn’t score often enough as the Navy-andGold succumbed to a 17-2 loss at Chattanooga Christian.
McKenley Baggett hit a leadoff single and made it to third base before Maggie Heard reached on an error. Alex Haynes hit lined a single to plate Baggett with the game’s first run.
However, the Lady Chargers would answer with three runs in the bottom of the first inning and, after getting OCA in order in the second, put up 14 runs in the home half.
Cadyn Cahill would score in the top of the third for the Lady Eagles, but the game would end shortly thereafter on the run rule.
Baggett finished 1-for-2 with a stolen base, while Heard and Haynes were also 1-for2.
Oakwood’s scheduled game against OLPH on Friday was cancelled. The Lady Eagles will play this Thursday against Grace Academy at 5 p.m. The game will be held at the East Brainerd ball fields.
