The Carter County All-Stars battled for an early lead, but couldn’t hold down a Unicoi County Lady Blue Devils late rally on Tuesday night in the championship of 11-12 girls softball tournament at Billy Bob Garrison Field.
The Blue Devils struck for two runs in the last of the fifth on a two-run single by third baseman Tanya Chavez to erase a 2-1 CCA lead and take a 3-2 victory.
“Carter County was ready for us,” commented UC manager Wayne Edwards. “Their kids played hard and we could not get our bats going for the longest time. We played good defense from the start, we’ll always bring that, but Tanya stepped up and got that big hit for us.”
