OC had big offensive outpourings in both the first and fourth innings with five and eight runs, respectively, in those frames.
In other action Thursday, South Fulton almost reached double digits, but it was in the wrong facet of the game.
The Red Devils committed nine errors during Thursday’s 10-0 blanking at Gibson County.
