Carrollton nearly pulled off a come-from-behind win in the Division II girls sectional softball tournament last week at the Field of Dreams.

The No. 8 seeded Warriors fell behind the No. 12 seeded Maysville Panthers 2-0 in the first inning and trailed 3-0 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning. They cut the margin to 3-2 in the bottom of the fifth and tied the game 3-3 in the sixth. After the Panthers plated three runs in the top of the seventh, the Warriors scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh, but the rally fell short and they were eliminated from tournament play by a 6-5 score.

The Warriors loaded the bases in the bottom of the fifth inning on singles by Maddie Keyser, Mehgan Harsh and Skylar Vipperman. Jazzlyn Pidgeon reached base on a Maysville error that allowed Cassidy Bajornas (who was running for Keyser) to score. With the bases still loaded, Shelbee Stidom drew a walk that scored Harsh and pulled the Warriors to within one run at 3-2.
