The Lions put up a strong fight against the very talented Bulldogs, who now have an overall record of 25-2.

Brady Phillips started on the mound for the Lions. He had a good run and was then relieved by Cade Bolin, followed by Peyton Bittle.

The Lions had a strong hitting performance at the beginning of the game.  A big triple by senior Cade Bolin gave the Lions momentum heading towards the latter half of the game.

The Lions had a 4-2 lead all the way to the top of the 7th inning. The Bulldogs showed their grit, plating 4 runs and taking the lead 6-4 in their last at-bat.
