On Thursday, the Buckhorn Wildcats hosted the Menifee County Wildcats. Buckhorn fell behind early, but more than made up the difference and eventually ended the game early with the 12-2 win.

The two teams traded runs in the first inning, with Menifee tacking on another run in the second (2-1). However, Buckhorn would more than match their opponent in the bottom of the frame as they plated six runs in the bottom of the inning (7-2).

Buckhorn would push the lead to 10-2 in the third inning, and then ended the game with a pair of runs in the fifth, bringing the game to a halt with the 12-2 win. Richard Stidham got the win on the mound.

Buckhorn stats: Shannon Blank 3 runs, 3 hits and 2 RBI, Alex Stokely 3 runs, 3 hits and 2 RBI, Johnavan Stidham 2 runs, 1 hit and 2 RBI, Richard Stidham 1 run and 2 RBI, Caleb Napier 1 hit and 1 RBI, Daniel Hurley 1 hit and 2 RBI, Josh Griffith 1 run, Austin Napier 1 run and 1 hit, Michael Lewis 1 hit, and Nick Stidham 1 run.
