The visitors took a 1-0 shutout victory over Jones County in the opening game last Wednesday afternoon, but the Lady Hounds rallied from a 5-2 deficit Wednesday night to win the second game 6-5 in extra innings to force the third game.
The final game was delayed until Friday because Jones County had a Thursday football game, but the extra time suited the Wolverines better than the Lady Hounds.
Union Grove jumped out to 5-0 lead with a grand slam homer by Brittani Crawford in the first inning and another run in the second, then held off the Lady Hounds’ attempts to rally.
The Wolverines, 20-15, advance to face Effingham County, 22-7, in a second round series that starts Wednesday at Effingham.
Jones County finishes the season at 28-7.
