Softball: Lady Red Elephants roll late to nip Chestatee
GAINESVILLE -- The Gainesville softball team overcame a 3-1 deficit in the top of the sixth to win 6-3 at Chestatee on Tuesday in Gainesville.
Gainesville (5-9) squeezed home a run on an Aisa Gannon bunt single to cut the deficit to 3-2.
Chestatee then loaded the bases in the bottom of the sixth, but Kayla Street responded to strikeout the side.
The Lady Red Elephants mustered four runs in the top of the seventh and held on thanks in large part to a line drive double play to end the game.
Street earned the win in the pitching circle, going the distance and striking out seven. Street, Gannon, Kara England, Whitney Ledford, and Tyra Newton all finished 1-for-3 on the night.
