Published 9:42 pm Thursday, August 17, 2023

It’s been a tough season for Porter’s Chapel Academy’s softball team, but this has been a great week.

Sophie Masterson went 2-for-4 with five RBIs and three runs scored, and Marley Bufkin had three hits and scored four runs as Porter’s Chapel defeated Jackson Academy 21-9 on Thursday.

PCA (2-10) has won two out of three games this week, after losing its first nine of the season. It scored in all five innings Thursday and finished the run-rule victory by plating nine runs in the top of the fifth.
