DICKSON — Less than 24 hours after pushing the district leaders to the limit, the Dickson Lady Comets were hoping their new found momentum would carry over Tuesday against Lindsay.

Unfortunately, despite a spirited effort, the Lady Comets eventually were defeated 15-5 in six innings at Lady Comet Field.

Dickson now faces a tough road to a possible regional tournament berth, as the loss dropped them to 1-4 in district play, while going to 4-10 overall.

Lindsay now has sole possession of the fourth and final play off spot at 3-3 in district play.

Things didn’t start off well for the Lady Comets as Lindsay’s bats came out on fire in the top of the first inning.

Six runs were produced off three hits with each being a two-RBI single, as the Leopardettes built a 6-0 advantage.

Dickson though managed to get on the board in the bottom half of the inning when Makenna Day slapped an RBI single to left field which scored Lacie Winchester to make it 6-1.

However, the second inning proved to not be kind either to the Lady Comets as Lindsay pushed across four more runs to make it a 10-1 contest.

Kayden Barton got an RBI groundout in the bottom of the second which scored Payton Eubank to make it 10-2.

An error allowed Lindsay to score in the top of the third at 11-2, before a run was wiped off the board due to a substitution error by the Lindsay coaches.

Dickson in turn responded with a solid third inning as Emily Nogueira got an RBI double which scored Winchester, before Shelby Beard got an RBI double of her own to center field to make it 11-4.

However Lindsay was one step ahead the next inning.

An RBI single kept the gap between the teams at eight runs at 12-4.

But the Lady Comets refused to go down quietly as Alyssa Warren slapped a ground ball which resulted in a throwing error, allowing Nogueira to score to make it 12-5 in the bottom of the fifth.

Lindsay though was too much down the stretch as the Leopardettes scored three runs in the sixth to shut the door on the game.

Beard took the loss on the mound for Dickson, throwing six innings. She allowed 17 hits with five walks and five strikeouts. 

Dickson is on the road Thursday afternoon against Turner beginning at 4 p.m.
