Anderson County, ranked 11th statewide, slipped past No. 13 Lafayette, 4-2, Monday night in Lexington.
The Lady Bearcats plated three runs – two unearned – in the second inning then held on for the win. Karrah Bottoms delivered the big hit, a two-run single that scored Kritty Morrow and courtesy runner K.K. Fitzpatrick. Brooke Collins, who had singled, came on to score on an error.
Anderson added another run in the sixth when Morrow got caught in a rundown between first and second, but prolonged things long enough for Fitzpatrick to score again.
