PROCTORVILLE — The Fairland Lady Dragons put all their eggs in one basket and made an omelet.

The Lady Dragons scored three runs on all four of their total hits in the sixth inning as they rallied past the South Point Lady Pointers 4-2 Wednesday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

“We finally put three or four hits together and made something happen,” said Fairland coach Joe Auxier. “It was pretty tough up until then for both teams.”

Fairland is now 8-6 and 4-2 in the OVC. South Point is 10-2 and 5-1 in the league.

Chandler Fulks got the win. She gave up five hits, struck out eight and walked two. Kaitlyn Brown took the loss as she allowed four hits, fanned four and walked one.

South Point took a 1-0 lead in the third. Abbey Winkler — who went 3-3 — singled and came around when a pickoff throw went into right field and the outfielder slipped and fell trying to retrieve the ball.

Fairland tied the game in the fourth when Molly Morris walked, stole second and scored on an error.

The Lady Pointers took the lead in the fifth. Halie Powell walked and scored on a two-out double by Bonnie Hileman.

Morris singled and went to second on a throwing error to start Fairland’s winning rally in the sixth.

Caitlin Stone followed with an RBI single to tie the game, moved up on a ground out and scored the go-ahead run on a hit by Haley Woodall. Chelsey Stanley then tripled on a 3-2 pitch for an insurance run.
