The Chieftains improve their record to 7-9 on the season. Lima Shawnee is now 6-3.

“We played a stronger overall game, both offensively and defensively,” said BHS head coach Katie Buffkin, who recorded her 100th career win. “Lately our defense has been holding strong, but the offense had been inconsistent. (On Wednesday) it stayed consistent throughout the game. I was very proud of the effort the girls put in.”

The Chiefs grabbed a 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the bottom of the second inning.
