Lady Eagles rebound from loss
From Staff Reports

March 27, 2004 -- ALBA -- Chelsea Harrison had two hits, two RBI and a run, Brittney Wright had a hit, two runs and a stolen base while Charlot Harper added a triple with three RBIs, as Como-Pickton rebounded from Tuesday's setback to Caddo Mills with a 7-6 win at Alba-Golden.

Taylor Moss had a home run and two RBIs, Kelli Harmon singled in a run and scored, Katheryn Humphrey had a hit and a run, while Elizabeth Melton added a hit. Christy Hunt (7-3) went the distance, giving up five earned runs on four hits while striking out five.

The Lady Eagles (9-3, 5-1) broke a 3-3 tie with four runs in the seventh. Wright walked and scored on Harrison's RBI single. Humphrey walked, and Harper cleared the bases, trying to stretch her triple into a grand slam before being thrown out at the plate.

AGHS didn't go down without a fight, as two runners reached on errors in its half of the seventh. What looked to be a routine hit to left field took a bad hop, was misplayed and turned into an inside-the-park home run to draw the Lady Panthers within one. Harrison snagged a fly to left for the final out.

AGHS took advantage of two Lady Eagle errors to go up 3-0 in the second. CPHS answered an inning later with a three-spot of its own. Hunt walked and scored on Moss' inside-the-park shot to left. Wright singled, stole second and scored on Harrison's hit to tie the game.

The Lady Eagles travel to Quitman Tuesday to face the Lady Bulldogs, who fell 5-4 to Caddo Mills Friday. The Lady Foxes are tied with CPHS atop the district standings. The Lady Eagles will play five of their final seven at home.
