A passed ball made it 4-0, and then an error on a ball hit by Kayrah Harris put the Eagles up 6-0. Katie Garrett hit a double for a 6-0 lead and Jabrayla Coglin reached on a bunt. She stole second and third. Kight walked and then a base clearing hit by Bell hit a double and an error allowed her to come all the way around to score. That made the score 9-0. Two more runs scored for an 11-0 lead and then hits by Lawhorne and Cartwright made it 13-0 before Dublin finally got the third out of the inning. The Eagles scored six more runs in the second inning. Lawhorne reached base, and an error on a ball hit by Garrett to put MCHS up 14-0. Kight bunted in the run for a 15-0 lead.
