Sometimes it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.

Despite jumping out to a 4-0 lead after two innings, Duncan wasn’t able to withstand Guthrie’s rally.

An RBI single by Madison Sutton proved to be the difference as the Lady Jays staved off elimination, winning 5-4 in game 1 Friday afternoon.

Samantha Simpson cut the Lady Demons lead to 4-1 with an RBI bloop single in the bottom of the second, before Bailey Shaffer made it 4-3 with a two-RBI single.

Sutton tied the game at 4-4 when she reached base on an error, allowing the tying run to score.

Duncan cashed in on two Lady Blue Jays throwing errors to take the lead in the first inning.

With Abbie Stewart on third, Rachel Cooper stole second base successfully.

But, when Guthrie catcher Samantha Simpson’s throw to third went into the outfield, Stewart was gifted the chance to score, giving Duncan a 1-0 lead.

Two batters later, it was deja vu all over again for the Lady Blue Jays.

This time it was Cooper scoring from third after Courtney Moore stole second, with another throw ending up in the outfield.

Kortney Brown then made it 3-0 after an RBI sacrifice bunt.

Courtney Moore made it 4-0 with an RBI single in the top of the second.

Autumn Parker (20-11) took the loss on the mound for the Lady Demons, throwing seven innings. She allowed five runs on 11 hits with two strikeouts.

Bailey Shaffer got the win for Guthrie, also throwing seven innings. She allowed four runs on nine hits with three strikeouts and two walks.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
