If high school softball consisted of only five innings of play then the Fulton softball team would have been victorious against Mexico last Friday.
Unfortunately for the Lady Raiders, high school softball lasts longer than five innings, which allowed the opportunity for Mexico to rally.
The opportunistic Lady Tigers rose to the occasion. During the sixth inning, the Lady Tigers took advantage of several opportunities for unearned runs to storm ahead of Fulton.
Mexico went on to prevail with a 4-2 win.
After a scoreless first inning, Fulton scored a run each in both of the bottom of the second and third innings. Neither team could score until the top of the sixth inning when Mexico rallied to take a 4-2 lead and the win.
