The Bulldogs scored another run in the top of the second before Wingfield scored its only four runs of the game in the bottom of the second to trail 12-4. Natchez High (4-3, 1-0) then scored five runs in the top of the third and three in the top of the fourth to end the game early.

“It was a good morale-builder and confidence booster,” Williams said. “The defense was better than average, but (they) still have some improvement to do.
