â€śWe just had a different approach,â€ť Bauxite Coach Michael Mattox said. â€śIâ€™m not sure we solved him, we just had a better approach to stop swinging at high pitches and low pitches, waited for a good a good pitch and just drove it.

â€ś[The Lady Cardinals] did some things Iâ€™ve been looking for them to do all season,â€ť Harmony Grove Coach Sammie Massey said. â€śI was very pleased. They hit the ball well and played good defense. Overall, I thought we played well.â€ť
