West led 3-1 after two innings before two-time defending state champion South (5-2) rang up three runs in the third and six in the fourth. Back-to-back doubles by McKenna Lester, Tori Bradley and Bailey Brumley gave the Jaguars their runs in the third. The Jags then batted around in the fourth, capped by Emily Berry’s home run.

Lester (2 RBIs) and Bradley each went 3-for-4 at the plate, Brumley clubbed two doubles for two RBIs and Berry added a double with her home run for four RBIs.
