Much like a severe storm that sweeps through an area, all the action happened in the span of 30 minutes during Obion Central’s 6-3 loss to Westview on Tuesday.
Obion Central’s Leann Staser goes to make a tag during Tuesday’s defeat.
Westview scored all of its six runs in the home half of the second inning, while Obion Central put up its three tallies in the top of the third.
Other action on Tuesday had South Fulton twice a victor at Greenfield. The Devilettes blasted G’field 11-2 in Game 1 and 14-0 in the second contest.
Finally, Union City fell 10-4 to Halls at Eddlemon-Hawks Field.
On a note related to Tuesday’s UC game, umpire Alan Owen has been released from an area hospital after he collapsed on the field and was taken by ambulance to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City.
No details were available as to the cause of Owen’s collapse.
Today’s lone softball game has OC at UC. That game is slated to begin at 5 p.m.
