Myrtle’s playoff hopes stayed alive on Monday, with the Lady Hawks taking a 6-3 win over Ingomar on senior night.
Myrtle scored the game’s first run in the opening inning, as Meshay Cox scored on a sac fly from Allie Bishop. The score remained the same until the fifth inning, when the Lady Falcons scored three runs to take the lead.
Ingomar had three straight hits, and Morgan Gooch tied the game on her single. With bases loaded, Heather Dillard gave Ingomar the lead, and Reid Little brought in the Lady Falcons’ final run on a single.
Myrtle answered with five runs in the bottom of the sixth, three runs coming from hits from the bottom of the line up. Tied at three, Heather Smith went into the game to hit for Kayla Turner and brought in the go-ahead runs on a single, and that was followed by an RBI single from Callie Denton.
“This is one game down and a huge win, because they’re a great team,” Myrtle coach Robert Gordon said. “We had a lot of folks step up in different situations that had key hits, and the bottom of our order did well, and I’m just proud of them and their effort. They wanted to win and do this for our seniors. It was a great night all the way around. I’m very pleased with the effort.”
Keely Chunn and Lauren Coggin had two hits each to lead Myrtle, while Mallory Adair had two hits for the Lady Falcons.
Ingomar’s 4-2 win over Pine Grove on Tuesday eliminated the Lady Falcons from playoff contention. West Union and Myrtle will play on Friday at West Union to decide the Region 2-1A champion.
