“We played our best game of the season,” said South Point coach Tanner Heaberlin.

South Point’s final run came in the sixth on a hit by Winkler, a sacrifice by Bri Whaley and Rawlin’s base hit.

Rock Hill avoided the shutout in the bottom of the seventh on a double by Kenzi Martin and a single by Lindy Simpson.
