DICKSON — While the color of the day on Monday was pink in celebration of fighting cancer at Lady Comet Field, the dominant colors on the field turned out to be black and gray.

An 11-run fifth inning proved to be too much for Dickson to overcome as Lone Grove won its 17th game of the season with a 16-2 victory in five innings. 

Before the Lady Horns offensive explosion happened in the top of the fifth, the Lady Comets were giving them a run for their money.

Lone Grove managed to grab a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning through RBI singles from Emmy Guthrie and Abbi Atkinson, before adding one more run in the second via an RBI single to center from Malea McMurtrey.

After Shelby Stevenson made it a 5-0 lead in the top of the fourth, it appeared as though the Lady Horns were in cruise control.

But Dickson had a response in the bottom half of the inning when Lacie Winchester narrowly missed a two-run home run in center field off the wall, instead settling for an RBI double, before Shanna McKown got an RBI groundout to make it a 5-2 contest.

Unfortunately for the Lady Comets, Lone Grove woke up in the top half of the fifth which included a solo home run from Chole Yeatts and a two-run home run from Shelby Stevenson as part of the 11-run inning.
