Lady Ads rally
Farragut Solftball overcomes 4-run deficit to whip rival BHS

Farragut High School Softball head coach David Moore was pleased that his team picked up a crucial 10-6 District 4-AAA home victory over rival Bearden Tuesday night, April 5, at FHS’s Bellamy Field.

The Lady Admirals' veteran coach, however, wasn't exactly thrilled throughout the voyage. He voiced his displeasure in the squad's postgame meeting as he preached the importance of remaining focused.

“We have five games this week and I'm pleased with the way we responded,” Moore said after seeing his team keep its perfect district record intact.

The Lady Admirals (8-5-1 overall, 5-0 in District 4-AAA) found themselves down early as the young Lady Bulldogs (4-5, 2-3) plated the game's first run with some help from a shaky Farragut defense.

Bearden junior Sara Burklin led off the frame with a double and came home on a fielder's choice out by Jenny Parkman.

The Lady Bulldogs scored three more in the third. Becky Braswell started the rally with a leadoff single. Freeman scored when Burklin grounded out. Emma Kugler then delivered a two-run single for a 4-0 lead.

The Lady Admirals cranked up their offense in the bottom of the third inning.

Megan Harris and Baylee Williams led off the inning with back-to-back singles. After an error scored one run, Kaci Murr's single plated Williams. A two-run double from sophomore designated player Elisa Carrasco evened the game 4-4.

“She hit the ball well today, we all did,” Harris said of Farragut's new star. Carrasco went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair.

The Lady Ads added five runs in the fourth. “You can't give a good hitting team like Farragut chances with errors,” BHS head coach Leonard Sams said.

In the fourth, the Lady Admirals added singles from Andi Murry and Chelsea Sutphin and two-run doubles from Williams and Tori Etheridge. Carrasco knocked in the fifth run with a groundout. “I was really proud of my team,” said Etheridge, who drove in three runs. “Everybody came alive for us. This was a big win for us because they're Bearden.”

Farragut went up 10-4 in the fifth on an RBI single by Williams, who went 3-for-4 and drove in three.

Dunaway drove in two Lady Dawgs runs in the seventh with a single.
