It was a closely-contested first game between the Bulldogs and the Hornets, but ultimately it was a slew of errors in the field that led to a 7-6 Huntland win.
RBI doubles by Wesley Pigg and Daniel Sellars put Cornersville up 2-0 in the top of the first inning.
Huntland evened the score in the bottom of the frame with a pair of runs and took the lead with two more in the bottom of third inning.
Tanner Mullins got one back for the Bulldogs when he scored on a Bryce Woodard fielder’s choice in the top of the third.
Cornersville eventually tied the game with a three-spot in the top of the sixth inning.
Mullins singled to right to lead off and was followed on base with a Peyton Cherry single and a Beau Schillig walk.
Mullins eventually scored the first run of the inning when Blaine Woodard was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.
Mason Callahan then drove in a pair of runs on a 2 RBI single to left, tying the game at six apiece.
