Copiah pitcher Noah Chapa all but dominated the Jackson Prep Patriots last Tuesday at Gallman in a 3-1 loss. Chapa held the highly-ranked Patriots to just 4 hits, while striking out four in a six-inning appearance. Colton Meadows came in to pitch the top of the seventh for CA, allowing a hit and recording two strikeouts.
Prep’s only runs came in the third inning after a Copiah error, a base hit and a sacrifice fly.
Copiah got its run in the bottom of the seventh. Ryan Drew reached on a dropped third strike, then later scored on a single by Will Lingle.
In the night cap, Prep’s bats woke up en route to a 14-0 win.
