The split decisions pushed FC’s overall record on the season to 5-3.

Another game against West Lincoln on Friday, March 3 was ultimately delayed after just two innings due to darkness and a malfunction of the field lights.

Amberly Wallace also went 2-of-3 against McComb with a pair of runs and three RBI.

Greyonne Queen and Marlee Tindle were both 1-of-2 with the tandem scoring three runs each.

Queen also had three RBI and a walk while Tindle had one RBI.
