Trailing by 3 runs in the bottom of the seventh, the Chesapeake Lady Panthers put together a clutch rally to beat the Minford Lady Falcons 8-7 on Monday.

“Addison Maynard is a freshman and she had a big game going 4-for-4 and threw well on the mound. Hannah Webb had a big home run to get us going and really fired up the team and earned her another win in relief,” said Lady Panthers coach Justin Adkins.

“Senior Morgan Clark had 3 hits and she was a spark plus for us the whole game.”

McKenna Brown hit into a fielder’s choice that scored the winning run and cap a 4-run rally in the seventh.

Besides Maynard going 4-4, McKenna Brown was 2-4 with 3 RBI, Webb 2-4 with a home run, Riley Isaacs 2-3 and Sidney Fuller 2-4.

On Wednesday, the Lady Panthers picked up an Ohio Valley Conference win by rolling past the South Point Lady Pointers 10-1.

Brown went 2-4 with 3 RBI as the Lady Panthers had 9 hits to back the pitching of Webb.

Kodee Langdon hit a solo home run for South Point’s lone run.
