Earlier this season, the Sulphur Lady Bulldogs suffered one of their most lopsided home losses in recent years against Lexington, an 11-1 game which ended in six innings.

Tuesday afternoon, the ladies in red and white proved that turnabout really is fair play.

Sulphur went on the road and needed just three runs as the Lady Bulldogs took down Lexington 3-1, moving Sulphur to 14-3 overall and 6-1 in district play, which leaves them at the top of the district 3A-3 standings.

Kinlee Duck got the scoring started in the top of the second inning when she got a line drive single to center field which scored Meredith Jones.

Sulphur appeared to take a 2-0 lead in the top of the third inning, but Macenzie Ruth was called out after an appeal by the Lexington dugout. 

However Sulphur wouldn’t be kept off the board again for long, as Abby Beck doubled the advantage with an RBI groundout, before Jones slapped an RBI double to center field which scored Ruth. 

Lexington tried to rally with one run in the sixth, but it would go no further. 

Harley Beesley tossed a gem on the mound, throwing a complete game. She allowed one earned run on four hits with 10 strikeouts and zero walks. 

Sulphur is back at home on Thursday in a district doubleheader with Community Christian beginning at 5 p.m.

Sulphur will have one last district doubleheader this season on Sept. 16 when the Lady Bulldogs travel to Little Axe. 

The Lady Bulldogs also have one last district game against Davis upcoming.
