Bruce tops Vardaman; plays at Calhoun City Friday

The Bruce Trojans split a pair of non-region games late last week with Vardaman and Houlka.

Trey Hall and Rashad Turner

The Trojans defeated Vardaman 11-8 with Bailey Nix earning the win on the mound. Brandon Williams closed the game out for the save.
Nix, Williams, Taylor Shoemake and  Benji Haire all had multiple hits in the game.

Bruce played at Houlka Saturday in what was described by many as a “swamp” of a field after the recent heavy rains.
The Wildcats came away with an 8-3 win. Malik Hobson took the loss for Bruce. Cade Clark recorded the only Trojan hit.

Bruce dropped to 7-9 on the season, 2-1 in region play. They were scheduled to play at Walnut Tuesday night in a region game.
They play at Calhoun City Friday and host Water Valley Saturday at noon and 2 p.m.
