    Delayed by one day due to a Monday night rain-out, Harrison County avoided a bases-loaded jam in the top of the first inning. After a couple of walks and an error loaded the bases, Harrison County pitcher Megan Bullock got out of the jam with a strikeout, a pop out and ground out.

    Last Wednesday, the Harrison County pair lost the first set to Glass and Evans 6-4, but bounced back with a convincing 6-0 win in the second set, setting up a decisive third set.
