Starter Austin Bunn threw 53 pitches in his four innings of work, setting down five with strikeouts and walking one. Quinlan Wiley struckout one and Daniel Smith two.

Frady led the Indians’ offense with two hits.

Bunn walked the lead-off man to open the game, but then 10 in row.

The War Eagles picked up their first hit of the game in the top of the fourth when Reid Christensen reached on a one-out single for Woodward’s first hit of the game.

Michael Sorrow drove in the War Eagles’ first run of the game.

East Coweta put runners on base in the first and second inning, but couldn’t bring them around to score.
