The Commodores’ head coach Greg Lewis talked to the Oxford Eagle about how he has seen his team progress.

“The girls have done a better job of getting the third out in pressure situations and getting big hits with runners on base,” Lewis said.

Corinth (20-6) made it to the North Half Championship by sweeping Yazoo City and Pontotoc.

Lafayette and Corinth met back in March, as Corinth swept the Commodores.

“Corinth has a good hitting team,” Lewis said. “They hit five home runs in game one last week against Pontotoc.”

Game times for this series are set for 5:30 p.m. on Thursday in Corinth and 6 p.m. on Friday at Lafayette.
