The Colonels tallied five hits and coaxed eight walks from their mound opponents, but they scored just two runs, both in the first on an RBI double by Sam Ayers, who drove in Dalton Weightman and Tyler Gates.
Head coach Todd Eubanks said the Cougars did their damage in the third. "Take away that one inning and we win 2-1, but you have to play seven innings."
He said while Chattahoochee got the one big inning, the Colonels stranded runners.
"We had our chances," he said. "Offensively, we just didn't get the big hit when we had runners in scoring position. We didn't have the one big inning."
Eubanks said the Colonels' relief pitching also held up. "Miles Terrell and Blake Kirk did a great job for us."
Providing the offense for Cass were Connor Law, two walks; Weightman, 2-for-4 with two singles, one run; Gates, 1-of-3 with one single, one run, a walk; Dalton Parham, a walk; Ayers, 1-for-3, a double, an RBI and a walk; Blake Kirk, 1-for-3, a single; Ronnie LaFollette, a walk; Taylor Bentley, a walk; and Chad Taylor, a walk.
Dylan Williams took the loss for Cass, pitching two and two-thirds innings and giving up six runs on three hits while walking five and striking out three. Terrell pitched two and one-third innings, giving up one earned run on one hit and one walk while fanning two. Kirk pitched one inning and gave up one hit and struck out one.
Timmy Bylerly got the win for Chattahoochee, allowing one earned run on two hits while striking out six and walking six.
Cass dropped to 10-8 and 6-6 in Region 7-AAAA. Chattahoochee improved to 10-7 and 8-4 in the region.
The Colonels return to the diamond today when they visit Sequoyah, and they entertain Chattahoochee Friday in a rematch of Tuesday's game. "Sequoyah is a big game for us," he said.
