In a rare occurrence Tuesday afternoon, Carter County got to witness the softball version of “Family Feud.” 

Cousins Kenna Self and Kristin Williams led their respective teams from Plainview and Dickson as the two coaches faced off for the first time.

Round one of this friendly family rivalry ultimately went to Williams and her Dickson Lady Comets as they managed to claim a close 3-1 victory at the Plainview softball field. 

After five scoreless innings, the Lady Comets finally broke through offensively with three runs in the top of the sixth. 

Kayden Barton gave Dickson a 2-0 lead when she slapped a two-RBI double to center field which scored Kayli Ingram and Jadyn McKenzie. 

Lacie Winchester then made it 3-0 with an RBI single to left field.

Plainview attempted to respond in the bottom half of the inning when Riley Grant got a sacrifice fly RBI, but the offense couldn’t generate another run in the contest. 

Shanna McKown got the win for Dickson on the mound, throwing a complete game. She allowed one earned run on five hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

Grant took the loss for Plainview, also throwing seven innings. She allowed two earned runs on four hits with two walks and 11 strikeouts. 

Plainview (12-11) is back in action Thursday at home against Lone Grove, while Dickson (13-11) will host a district doubleheader against Atoka Thursday night beginning at 4:30 p.m.
