Lady Dragon Softball Saves Playoff Hopes with Wild Comeback

The Carroll Lady Dragons delivered a magical comeback to keep their playoff hopes alive Tuesday night.

The Lady Dragons scored five runs in the bottom of the 7th for a 7-6 walkoff victory at CSHS vs. L.D. Bell. Carroll is still fighting for one of our playoff spots in District 5-6A with one game remaining.

Carroll needs Lewisville to defeat Hebron Wednesday night to earn a playoff berth.

The Lady Dragons are 16-11-1 and 7-6 in district and finish the season Saturday at 1 p.m. at Hebron.

Carroll overcame a 5-2 lead in the seventh as Avery Zeigler singled in the winning run. The offense was led by Gaby Garcia’s 4-for-4, two-RBI performance. Abigail Stuart had three hits and two RBI and Allie Nuenke had two hits.

The Lady Dragons finished with four extra base hits. Nueke got the victory on the mound going five innings.
