Submitted by Kristi Mitchell/contribution by Carey Meitzler

The Picayune Lady Maroon Tide defeated Pearl River Central 6-1 to keep its

playoffs hopes alive. With the win, Picayune moved its overall record to 10-5

and 6-3 in division 8-4A. The race for the  second seed appears to be between

Picayune and Poplarville, who also has three division losses.

Picayune has one division game left, next Tuesday at Poplarville, while Poplarville

also has a game with Bay High hanging in the balance.

The Tide managed three runs in the second after a scoreless first inning. With one

out Breonne Spikes and Sarah Trexler both drew walks. Spikes scored on a RBI

single from Tara Dunn. Trexler and Dunn both scored on a hit by Courtney Dickens

that was mishandled by the short stop.

After a scoreless third inning, the Tide scored two runs in the fifth on a two run double

by Cassie Rabion that plated Dunn and Dickens who walked and singled respectfully.

The Tide's final run came in the fifth when Spikes tripled and scored on a fielders choice

by Trexler.

PRC's Virginia Blanchett scored in the top of seventh to avoid the shutout.

Katie Hebert went the distance on the mound limiting the Blue Devils to one hit. She

walked four batters and recorded 11 strikeouts.

Picayune will host Stone County on Friday. JV action gets underway at 5:00pm

with the Varsity game to follow. The Varsity game will be on WRJW 1320 AM.
