Alli Taufman reached on an infield hit and drove in the fifth run of the inning.

The top of the Hawkinsville order, which went 7-for-9, scored a run in the bottom of the fifth to cut the Lyons lead to 5-4. Rogers, who went 3-for-3, hit her second double to score the run.

Ashtyn Braddy triples in a sixth inning run

In the top of the sixth Emma Salter reached on an error and scored on Braddy’s double to right center field to make it 6-4.
