Tiffany Ferguson managed the only Huntington hit on a bunt in the bottom of the fourth inning. A Lauren Wagoner sacrifice moved Ferguson into scoring position, and she scored the Lady Hounds’ first run of the game on a wild pitch.

&uot;Obviously you want to win every game, but we’re going to try to use this as a positive,&uot; Huntington coach Michael McAnally said. &uot;I hope this is a wake up call.

&uot;We started the season 10-0, and I think it gave us the big head,&uot; he said. &uot;We made mistakes, but they didn’t hurt us. I think games like this really show those mistakes, and we need to learn from them.&uot;

Especially with the South State District Tournament at Amite Christian School Saturday, and Huntington hosting the state tournament Sept. 30.

Huntington faces Pine Hills at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, but all four teams in the South District have already qualified for the state tournament.

&uot;We’re pretty much playing for seeding,&uot; McAnally said.
