They were down but never out as Ontario edged rival Lexington in eight innings Friday by a final of 8-7.  Lexington plated three runs in the top of the first with Gabbie Parnell hit a long fly to center with the bases loaded.  That scored one, Lindsey Winters and Mackayla Moore also picked up RBI's making 3-0 Lex after the top of the first.

Ontario would tie the game in the bottom of the inning after Lauren Musille doubled home a run, the Warriors LeBrianna Wallace smacked a two run homer to right center to tie the game at three all.  Lex would pick up another run in the second with Parnell picking up an RBI single and it was 4-3 Lex after an inning and a half.  After a scoreless third, Lady Lex grabbed two more runs in the fourth with Moore picking up two more RBI's on a bloop single to right that just landed fair making it 6-3 Lexington.

But Ontario would come right back getting two runs in the bottom of the fourth with Musille picking up two RBI's on a single to left center field making it 6-5 Lex after four.  Then in the bottom of the 5th, Ontario tied the game at six all on two Lex errors that allowed the Warriors to get their sixth run and after five, it was Lady Lex 6 Ontario 6. Lady Lex took the lead back by adding another run in the top of the sixth after Parnell doubled, and Conn bunted her to third.  Winters would then ground out to short scoring Parnell making it 7-6 Lexington.

The score would stay that way until the bottom of the seventh, and the Warriors last at bat.  With two outs and a runner on second Musille hit a ground ball to first, Lex was unable to make a play at the bag that allowed Lindsay Musille to score making the score 7-7 to force extra innings.  Ontario would win the game in the bottom of the eighth.  With the winning run on third and two outs, the Warriors Lexi Augustine smacked a single that brought home Zima Scheibert with the winning run ending the game at 8-7 in Ontario's favor.

With the win on Friday, the Warriors improved to 8-5, while Lady Lex fell to 4-9.
