Jasper took the early lead with one run in the top of the first on an RBI double by junior Kennedy Matheis. Pike Central would score eight in the bottom of the third to take an 8-1 lead.
The Wildcats (1-0) would come back with four in the top of the fourth, highlighted by a two-run home run by Matheis, to make it 8-5. Jasper would tie the game with three more in the top of the fifth on a bases clearing double by sophomore Hillary Springer.
Springer also doubled in the game-winning run in the top of the seventh.
The eight runs in the fourth would be all the Chargers could plate though, as senior Mia Werner and the Wildcats defense would hold the Chargers scoreless over the final four innings to claim the 9-8 victory in the season opener for both teams.
The Wildcats will be back in action Tuesday for their home opener and first conference game of the season as they host Southern Indiana Athletic Conference opponent Evansville Central.
