FPD softball pitcher Carson Ochs and West Laurens pitcher Payten Strickland battled it out in the circle Wednesday night at FPD. Strickland scored the only run in the entire game in the 5th inning after stealing third on a dropped third strike, and then scored as FPD tried to get the batter out at first base.

Ochs recorded 11 strikeouts in the loss. Up next, West Laurens will play at Veterans on August 18th, and FPD will also play at Veterans but on August 22.
