    With Jami Davis on the mound for the Fillies, GRC took advantage of one Harrison County error and got a clutch two-out, two-run single from Erica Carrus for their early 3-0 lead.
    “We came out tight and a few mistakes defensively,” said Harison County coach Christine Garnett after the game.”
