SULPHUR, La. (KPLC) - The No. 3 Elizabeth Bulldogs made it back to the state championship game for the first time since 2017 but didn’t get the result they wanted after losing to No. 1 Choudrant 6-1 in seven innings.

The Bulldogs struck first in the top of the third inning, but the Aggies would answer right back to tie the game. For a while, it was a back and forth pitching battle between Alex Chamberlain and Braden Jones. Chamberlain went six innings striking out eight batters but gave up six runs on eight hits. In the bottom of the sixth, the Aggies found their rhythm scoring five runs to seal the deal on their championship victory.

Choudrants’ Braden Jones earned Most Oustanding Player honors. He went the full distance as well striking out eight batters, allowing just four hits, and giving up one run.
