However, the home team rallied for six runs in the home half of the sixth frame to quell the Lady Blue Devils’ upset bid with an 8-6 win. The rally was highlighted by a pair of three-run long balls by juniors Chesney Millsaps and Brittney Krider.

JV Cougar Dawson Elder fires the ball to the plate during Tuesday’s home win.

The six-run uprising put Alexander (10-0, 5-0) in front to stay .
ACHS leadoff hitter Lanie Goforth’s recent hot streak at the plate continued Tuesday as the sophomore tallied four hits in the Cougar win.
Krider added a pair of hits and three RBI.
