LOCAL SPORTS: Mounties beat Tigers for first time since 2009, Mustang golfers win Bi-County


Craig lifts Mounties past Tigers

Trailing 7-6 in the seventh, Marissa Craig drove in a pair of runs to lift Southmont past Lebanon 8-7 for the Mounties first win over the Tigers since 2009.

“It was an exciting, hard-fought game,” Southmont coach Dan Taylor said. “Really good game in the Sagamore Conference and a good come from behind win on the road. Marissa stepped up.”

Southmont took a 6-1 lead with a six-run third inning, but Lebanon responded with two in the bottom of the third, before taking a 7-6 lead with  four-run fifth. Josie Hollingsworth hit a three-run home run in the four-run inning.

Craig’s decisive hit was one of two for the junior, who drove in three runs. In all the Mounties had 11 hits in the win, including two from Taylor Grino. Natalie Manion scored two runs.

“We’ve never hit well over here,” Taylor said. “We probably haven’t scored eight runs the last four trips over here. Our girls did a great job and never gave up.”

Lebanon will visit Southmont on Thursday.
