The Cats had a slow start to their matchup with the Cougars last Wednesday, April 10. Early off they found themselves down 0-8. The Cats made some errors early on, but flipped a switch around the fourth inning. 

Senior pitcher Zac Majors entered the game during the fifth inning to pitch in relief for the Wildcats, and the game started to turn around. The Cats ironed out some issues with their hitting and scored four runs during this inning. 

Their strong performance carried through the sixth inning, but the Cats then found themselves down again at the bottom of the seventh by a score of 7-11. However, they never gave up and pushed through, hitting strong until the very end of the game. 

The Cats scored five more runs in the seventh with freshman Rocky Perlozzo hitting a walk off double. Junior Drew Potter scored the winning run for the Wildcats. 

Majors commented on the excitement of the game. 

“It had its ups and downs, but it was a thrilling game. From being down by a lot to winning the game was amazing,” said Majors. 

The Wildcats improved their record to 2-5 after defeating the Cougars. They faced the Knights of Turner Ashby on Friday, April 12 on the road with hopes of improving their record even more, however they took a 1-19 loss and are now 2-6. They now look ahead to Tuesday, April 16 where they will take on the dragons of William Monroe High School at home.
