The Water Valley softball team bested Oxford 9-4 on Wednesday. Walks and errors hurt the Lady Chargers in the area matchup.
Savana Nelson started for Oxford and went 1.2 innings.
Ciara Steward relieved Nelson with two outs in the second and pitched well for Oxford the rest of the way but the Lady Chargers’ bats couldn’t catch up to Water Valley. Tyler Epes earned the win for Water Valley. Oxford returns to action today with a tripleheader against Lafayette. The middle school teams will face off at 3:30, followed by a junior varsity game at 5 p.m. and a varsity matchup after that. (March 28, 2013, Page 8)
