Enterprise Falls in State Final

The Enterprise Lady Bulldogs' day in Jackson got off to a rough start and ended in disappointment.

In game one, Josh Perkins' squad was run-ruled by Eupora, losing 12-2. The Lady Bulldogs rebounded to force a third game with an 11-9 win over the Lady Eagles.

In the deciding game, Enterprise was trailing by a run with one out in the bottom of the 7th inning when Baleigh Volking drew a bases-loaded walk, plating Haley Brooke Smith. The next batter, Bayleigh Creel, popped foul to the left fielder and Blair Hennington tagged up from third.

As soon as Hennington slid across the plate, the Enterprise dugout emptied and the celebration of the winning the state 2A slow-pitch championship was underway. An appeal by the Eupora coaching staff that Hennington left the bag early took the run off the board and ended the 7th inning with the score knotted up at eight.

The real celebration belonged to the Lady Eagles after they knocked off Enterprise 11-10 in 10 innings.
