(Note: This story has been updated to reflect a new start time.)

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast had a doubleheader rained out Tuesday, and the Lady Bulldogs were looking for another team to fill the schedule back out.


They aimed high, and now there will be an early season top five showdown Wednesday. No. 5 Gulf Coast will travel to No. 1 LSU-Eunice, the defending national champion, with the first game starting at noon.


The Lady Bulldogs are unbeaten through their first six games of the season, and coach Kenneth Long stands three victories away from the 500-win plateau. LSU-E has slugged its way to an 18-2 mark, having hit 36 homers.


The teams will play again Saturday at 5 p.m. in the Rush Invitational in Meridian.
