Rally falls short as Lady Mus­tangs lose to Dade Co.

Walker County Messenger - - Sports - By Scott Herpst

The Sad­dle Ridge Lady Mus­tangs tried to rally late last Tues­day night, but the come­back at­tempt was too lit­tle too late as they dropped a 9-3 de­ci­sion at Dade County.

The Navy-and-Red trailed 6-0 go­ing into the sixth in­ning when they scored three times to cut the lead in half.

They loaded the bases be­fore Haynie Gil­strap drew a walk to bring in a run. Then, af­ter the Lady Mus­tangs reloaded the bases, Abby Sans­ing sin­gled to cen­ter­field to bring in Sum­mer Bur­kett and Lexi Baker.

How­ever, Dade County would re­spond with three runs in the bot­tom of the sixth to put the game away.

Myk­e­ria John­son also had a hit, while Sans­ing al­lowed three earned runs in the cir­cle, fin­ish­ing the game with two strike­outs.

Sad­dle Ridge’s game ver­sus Her­itage, slated for this past Thurs­day at LaFayette High School, was rained out. The Lady Mus­tangs (0-4) will play at Chattanooga Val­ley on Tues­day be­fore fac­ing Rossville at LHS on Thurs­day. Game time is set for 5 p.m. both nights.
