Monday’s results were a mixed bag for South Fulton.
The Devilettes hammered outclassed Humboldt twice (22-0 and 14-0) in a pair of District 14A makeup contests, but then struggled defensively and suffered a 7-3 eight-inning loss to Obion Central in the nightcap of a three-game day.
H’boldt offered little resistance in the first of those games, but OC plated four runs in the first extra-inning of Game 3 to drop SF to 17-9.
Central is now 16-12-2.
Today, Union City plays at Trenton, Obion Central will celebrate Senior Night against Haywood and South Fulton visits Westview.
OC 7, SF 3
