    On paper, this game looked like a solid match up between Madison Central and Northwest Rankin, but by the 4th inning in the game the Jaguars were up 16 to 2. Pitcher Reggie Grace on the mound for the jaguars looked good, silencing batters back to the dugout in several innings, while the errors for the cougars piled up. Those mistakes layered in the first four innings.
