The Mena Bearcat baseball team traveled to Cossatot River last Thursday, March 30th, to take on the Eagles.
Mena scored the first three runs of the game in the top of the second to take an early 3-0 lead. The Eagles answered back with a run in the bottom of the third. In the top of the fourth, the Bearcats scored their fourth run, to extend their lead to three. However, Cossatot scored two more runs in the bottom half of the fourth, to narrow Mena’s lead down to one run. Pitching and defense played a factor for the rest of the game, as no more runs were and scored, and the Bearcats held onto their 4-3 lead to win their first ballgame of the season.
On the same night, the Mena Ladycats softball team defeated Waldron by a score of 12-0.
