The West Lauderdale Knights got back on the winning trail Saturday afternoon, with a 12-1 win over Clarkdale.

In the fourth inning, the Bulldogs got a run to make the score 6-1.
The Knights added two more runs , when Randy Divley singled to right field, and Ike Munn reached on an error. Both Dively and Munn scored to make it 8-1.
In the fifth and final inning, C.J. Fountain was issued a walk, then Jamie Fontain singled to center field, but it turned into a triple due to a Bulldog error. Dively had a sacrifice fly to score Fontain. Munn followed with a single, and Posey drove him in with a single to right field. Posey later scored on an error to finalize the decision 12-1.
The Bulldogs had three hits and six errors, compared to nine hits and one error for West Lauderdale.
