EDON – The clichés are nearly endless in describing what we all know as simply, ‘the rally’. The concept of digging deep within one’s self when all appears lost is not entirely a puff piece, though. The Fayette Lady Eagles did it against Edon in the top of the seventh, but the Lady Bombers returned the favor in the home half of the inning, bringing about a 10-9 win for the hometown girls on April 15.
Fayette jumped out to a 2-0 lead after an inning of play, and expanded the advantage at 6-3 after four. Edon got two more in the sixth, but Fayette responded with a three-run rally in the top of the seventh. Trailing by four with three outs remaining, the Belles in Bomber Blue turned the tables with a rally of their own that ended the game walk-off style, putting up five runs when they needed them the most.
