Chatham Central bolted to an early 2-0 advantage after one before tacking on three runs in the second, four in the third, five in the fourth and one more in the fifth to cruise to the easy win.

Olivia Hudson led the Bears offensively on Tuesday with a 3-for-5 effort that included two runs, five RBI and a double while Bailey Barker was 2-for-2 with four runs scored, three RBI, two doubles and three walks.
