“We came out ready to play against Pisgah,” Scottsboro head coach Kelly Scott said. “We watched film of the Arab game before the game [with Pisgah] and I think it really helped them to see some errors we needed to correct. They came out and really worked on correcting them, and I think that made the difference in how we approached this match.
“We attacked the ball with confidence and it showed. Abby Jones had an amazing game…showed what she is capable of and I was very proud of her for that. Anna Lusk is playing very consistent, awesome defense and when that happens we are able to get our hitters swinging, and when they swing like they did [Tuesday] night we can win ballgames.”
