JJ Bass later extended Joaquin’s lead to 2-0 after doubling and stealing her way around the remainder of the base paths.

Joaquin had another big inning with a rally during the bottom of the third inning which saw them turn two hits and three walks into four runs by Addi Harvey, Bass, Kennedy Stanley and Chloee Mason. JHS held a 6-0 lead going into the fourth inning.

Allison Baker led off the fifth inning for Beckville with a double off the leftfield fence. She scored on a fielder’s choice.
