Callaway hangs tough against Haralson

A week ago, the Callaway Lady Cavaliers were unable to get anything going at the plate in a 5-0 loss to a formidable Haralson County softball team.

On Tuesday afternoon those same two teams met again, and while Callaway once again came up short on the scoreboard, it enjoyed a lot more offensive success in the rematch.

In a 7-2 loss in a Region 5-AA game, Callaway had seven hits against a Haralson County pitcher who has been locking down opposing lineups this season.

Unfortunately for the Lady Cavaliers, outside of the first inning when they scored two runs, they were unable to take advantage of a handful of scoring opportunities.

Most notably, Callaway loaded the bases in the bottom of the sixth inning with no outs and was unable to score.

Callaway did all of its scoring in the opening inning.

After Haralson County scored twice in the top of the first, Callaway answered with two runs in the bottom of the inning.

With McKenzie Rhodes on first, May Lawton drove the ball to the fence and showed off her speed by rounding the bases for an inside-the-park home run.

Callaway had base runners in each of the next five innings but was unable to score.

Lawton finished with two hits and she was also hit by a pitch, Ava Shuford had a double, and Rhodes, Lindsay Cofield, Alora Vetsavong and Chelsey Courson each had hits.

Lawton got the start on the pitcher’s mound and she threw six solid innings, and Dara O’Neal pitched the seventh inning.

Callaway is scheduled to host region foe Temple on Thursday.
