Trenton seemingly had control of the game throughout, but left opportunities to build a big lead slip by in the second, third, and fourth innings, leaving the bases loaded in all three frames, but scoring only two runs.

THS was able to put away Milan with a six-run top of the fifth inning, highlighted by a two-run single by senior McKinley Hurley:

Hurley's hit gave Trenton breathing room, while two batters later, Daryian Otto opened the floodgates some more:

Trenton finished the scoring in the top of the sixth inning, with a two-run Whitley Richman double making the final score 10-0.
Senior right-hander Mallory Hooyman pitched five shutout innings, aloowing three hits, and escaping a two on, one out jam in the fourth inning, with Trenton up only 2-0 at the time. Otto pitched around a leadoff walk in a scoreless sixth inning.

Milan sophomore Kenna Michael showed some of her pitching talent against a talented Trenton team, but faltered in the heat and humidity in the middle innings, with THS working deep counts in the stifling conditions. Michael worked all six innings, and struck out two Lady Bulldogs on the evening. Milan's defense, in particular middle infielders Sam DeRyke and Haley Mason, had strong nights defensively, helping to keep Trenton's potent offense at bay before the final two innings.

In three at-bats, Michael had a double in three at-bats for the Lady Wildcats, with the other Milan base hits coming from Jocelyn Miller and Sam DeRyke.

For Trenton, Whitley Richman finished with three RBI's, Hurley had a pair of runs scored and a pair of RBI's, while Hannah Kennebeck and Jayden Roeder both scored two runs.

Head Coach John Cowling indicated that while Milan kept things close early, his confidence never wavered, even as Milan's confidence grew:

Trenton will continue its season-opening road trip on Tuesday night at Gallatin. The game, starting at 5 o'clock, will be broadcast on Hot Country Z 101.7. Milan plays at Gallatin in the Lady 'Cats second game of the season on Thursday night, with Trenton hosting Carrollton on Thursday night at 5 o'clock, in the Lady Bulldogs home opener.

Milan won the JV contest at American Legion Park by a final score of 3-1 (in 3 innings). For Trenton, Ashton Whitaker pitched all three innings, allowing only one earned run and striking out four. Mason Hooyman had a hit and an RBI, Bailey Bankson was 1 for 1 with a walk, while Jessi Westcott, Lauren Dolan, and Ashton Whitaker all chipped in with one hit each.
