Coming into the Tuesday night conference match-up the Lady Bulldogs were riding a 12-2 record that included wins over Van Buren, Vilonia, Pea Ridge, and Mena in the past week. While Harrison would be the first to light up the scoreboard with a run on the top of the first inning, Greenwood used an eight run first inning to push ahead and of the Lady Goblins. From there it was all Greenwood. Daisy Parker would be the first to cross the home plate, followed by Haley McAdams on a Brilea Rofkahr double to the left field. Bri Taylor would be the third run for the Lady Bulldogs in the first inning. Piper Pitts, less than a month after helping the Lady Bulldogs to a 3-Peat in Basketball, gets a single to bring in Taelyn Martin and Saylor Hart to make the score 5-1.

The Lady Bulldogs were not done in the first inning as they made their way through the batting order, Rylee Floyd is the next Lady Bulldog to cross home plate. Daisy Parker and Piper Pitts scored again to make it 8-1. Harrison would look to the bullpen to find relief and change pitchers to end the first inning. Greenwood would add two more runs in the second inning from Emily Creason and Rylee Floyd, making the score 10-1. It would hold there until the bottom of the fourth when Floyd gets her third run of the night. Piper Pitts got another run to make the score 12-1. On the next play Daisy Parker scored on Brilea Rofkahr bunt. The next play would see Haley McAdams and Rofkahr finish the scoring for Greenwood. Pitcher Tori Howard takes the win in game one, 15-1.

While the first game had a big first inning, coincidentally the second game had big second inning. The Lady Bulldogs would hold Harrison scoreless in route to 15-0 win. Greenwood struck first by holding Harrison to no runs in the first inning. A Tori Howard run from a Brilea Taylor single to right field, lit up the run column on the scoreboard for Greenwood. In the bottom of the 2nd inning, the Lady Bulldogs scored a staggering eleven runs. Rylee Floyd started the scoring run, with Emmy Burton getting a run on a passed ball and Daisy Parker scoring as well, benefiting from a Tori Howard double. Score sitting at 4-0. Brilea Rofkahr singles a line drive to the left field bringing in Tori Howard. Rofkahr scores on a passed ball making the score 6-0.

Bri Taylor became the sixth run for Greenwood. A pitching change for Harrison did not stop the Lady Bulldogs as Telyn Martin and Saylor Hart would score on the same play. Rylee Floyd scored for a second time from a Daisy Parker single. Tori Howard batted in Daisy Parker and Emmy Burton pushing the score to 12-0 and the final score of the quarter. Bottom of the third, Brilea Rofkhar scores and Taelyn Martin scores on wild pitch. The final score came from a Ryleigh Decker fly ball that turned into an error from the Lady Goblin Centerfielder. Emily Daggett would take advantage of the opportunity and make it across home plate. Haley McAdams was the winning pitcher for game two.

The Lady Bulldogs play again on Tuesday April 9th against Siloam Springs. The game will be in Greenwood with the first pitch at 4:30.
