The Union Cougz Softball team traveled to Kamas to take on the 3A number two seed South Summit Wildcats. It was a back and forth matchup. Malorie Bostick Homered and doubled, while Parker Labrum and Allie Earl also homered as the Cougz fell behind early, then came back to take a two run lead after five innings. The Wildcats scored three in the sixth and the Cougars responded with two in the top of the seventh, but the Wildcats plated two runs in the bottom to edge the Cougars 9-8.
They will once again travel to a pod site in Kamas Saturday to start the 3A tournament taking on 7th seed North Sanpete. With a win, they should face the Wildcats once again.
