No action until the bottom of the 3rd where Mississippi Gulf Coast put 3 more on the board including a two run home run to extend the lead to 7.
Mississippi Gulf Coast closed in out in the bottom of the 5th with one more run to end the game 8-0.
The Bulldogs looked to bounce back in Game Two versus Snead State College after a tough first game.

They kept the momentum going the next inning with a 2 RBI single by Danielle Downs to extend the lead to six.
In the top of the 3rd Snead State got on the board with a solo home run but the Bulldogs came right back in the fourth in with a four run inning to put the lead at 10-1 which Snead State could not recover from and ended up losing 10-2.
GMC played their last game of the day versus Lakeland College trying to put together a winning record for the day.
The Bulldogs scored first in the 2nd inning on an RBI single by Caitlin Collins to go up 1-0. Lakeland leveled the score a one a piece in the bottom of the 2nd.
