Pisgah took command with a four-run third inning Wednesday and went on to post a 7-4 win over Polk County in non-conference softball action in Canton.
The Wolverines dropped to 4-5 with the loss. Polk County is set to travel to Owen on Friday for a Western Highlands Conference matchup.
After Pisgah pushed across two runs in the bottom of the second to take an early lead, Polk County scored twice in the top of the third to even the game. Amy Chupp singled with one out, then scored on Anna McFadden’s double. Following Morgan Stott’s single, Ansley Lynch’s sacrifice fly brought home McFadden to make it 2-2.
But Pisgah (8-2) scored four runs in the bottom of the third without a hit, taking advantage of five walks and an error, to grab a 6-2 lead, an advantage the Bears would keep the rest of the way.
Polk County did slice the deficit in half in the top of the fourth, scoring a pair of runs as Emily Prince singled with two outs, followed by a walk to Allie Thompson. A Chupp single and Pisgah error allowed both runners to score to make it 6-4.
The Bears added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth.
Chupp finished 2-for-2 for the Wolverines, with McFadden, Stott, Jaylin Jackson and Prince each adding hits.
