PROCTORVILLE — Maybe the breaks do even out.

After losing three games this past week when opponents enjoyed one big inning, the Fairland Lady Dragons turned the table on the River Valley Lady Raiders as they posted a 4-2 Ohio Valley Conference win on Friday.

The Lady Dragons (2-3, 2-1) used a four-run second inning to do all their scoring and then used the pitching of Chandler Fulks to secure the win.

“It was a little different tonight. We were the ones with the big inning,” said Fairland coach Joe Auxier.

Fulks allowed six hits, struck out seven and walked just one to get the win.

After a scoreless first inning, Haley Woodall singled to start the bottom of the second, stole second and scored on Ellen Hinshaw’s double as Fairland took a 1-0 lead.

Chelsey Stanley followed with a run-scoring single, Miranda Hayes put down a sacrifice bunt, Madison Kazee and Caitlin Stone walked to load the bases and Fulks singled in two runs.

River Valley got a run in the third on a hit by Libby Leach and a triple by Ashley Cheesebrew.

The Lady Raiders made it 4-2 in the fifth when Chelsea Copley singled, moved up on a ground out and came home on a hit by Cheesebrew.

Fairland plays at Rock Hill on Monday in a key OVC game.
