TARKINGTON - It was a battle of two of the top teams in district on Tuesday night as the Coldspring Lady Trojans banged out 12 hits and took advantage of five Lady Horn errors in a 12-7 victory.

Coldspring opened the scoring with four runs in their first at-bat to move in front 4-0. Tarkington cut the deficit in half with a pair of runs in the bottom of the second. Savannah West singled to start things off and Kalee Johnson followed by reaching on an error. Jaiden Massie lined a single to plate both West and Johnson, and the score was 4-2.

The Trojans then expanded their lead in the fourth with five runs to run their advantage to 9-2. The Lady Horns answered with a couple of runs in the bottom half of the frame. Emily Lowe reached on a Coldspring error and then Abby Peachee singled. Oakley Blackburn and Shelbie Chamblee each had RBI ground outs and the score was 9-4.

Tarkington made it a 9-5 game with a run in the fifth as West singled and then scored on a Johnson RBI single. The Lady Horns made things interesting with two more runs in the sixth. Chamblee and West each walked to put a pair of runners on board. Maddie Dominy then hit a grounder to shortstop that was booted, allowing a run to score and the deficit was 9-6. Moments later, West scored on a passed ball and all of a sudden, the score was 9-7.

Coldspring then put the game out of reach by scoring three runs in the top of the seventh inning for the final score of 12-7. Lowe and Dominy shared mound duties for the Lady Horns. West finished with three hits and three runs scored.
