Mountain Lions Plate 18 Runs and Split Double-Header Against UWG

Spencer Mathis

Assistant Sports Information Director

Young Harris hit the road on Wednesday (Mar. 6) and took on the UWG Wolves. After a delay, game one finally got underway at 4 p.m. and YHC dominated from start to finish, winning 12-4. The Mountain Lions smashed three home runs and took down the Wolves in six innings. In game two, Young Harris jumped out quickly to a six-run lead, capitalizing off errors and wild pitches, while playing small ball. UWG clawed their way back into the game slowly, but it eventually added up and the Wolves found themselves down by only two runs heading into the bottom of the seventh inning; UWG quickly got two runners into scoring position before Emily Bodenheimer hit the walk off single to score two Wolves players and claim a 7-6 game two victory over the Mountain Lions. 

Young Harris moves to 12-8 overall and the Wolves moved to 10-11 overall on the season. The Mountain Lions return to play on Tuesday (Mar. 12) at 2 p.m., where they take on Lenoir-Rhyne University at the YHC Softball Field in Young Harris, Georgia.
