The Harrison County Fillies put together 19 hits including three home runs, a triple and a double en route to a 15-3 win over Bracken County Thursday in Brooksville.
The game began with a four-run first inning for the Fillies as, after a Morgan Grose walk and a single by Morgan Florence, Ashley Coppage blasted a three-run home run to give the visiting Harrison County girls a 3-0 lead.  
After a couple of line outs to short, Shelby Ishmael singled, advanced on a walk to Courtney Newsome and then scored the fourth run on a single by Haley Powers.  
The four runs were all the Fillies would need but they added 11 more despite stranding another 10 runners on base.  
After the Fillies added another run in the third inning, Bracken County put together a three-hit, three-run inning in the bottom of the third to make the score 5-3.  
Polar Bear shortstop Brooke Woods had a two-run double to spark Bracken County in the inning.  
This was all that the home team was to get for the evening off Fillies starter and winning pitcher, Jami Davis.  
The freshman hurler allowed only four hits for the game, walked two and struck out 11 to stymie the Lady Bears.  
Junior Haley Powers started her first game for the Fillies for the year and made great use of her opportunity.  
Powers was the designated hitter for the game and had three hits including a triple and a home run while driving in five.  
Coppage had four hits in five at bats with two home runs, a double and a single along with seven RBI.  
Florence and Ishmael also had three hits for the Fillies.  
The win gives the Fillies a perfect 4-0 record for the year while Bracken County falls to 4-3 with the loss.  
The Fillies next game is Friday when they play first Clarksville Academy of Clarksville Tenn., and then Ohio County (1-4) in the Play It Again Classic in Clarksville.
