Lamoille softball players staged a miraculous comeback Thursday, May 5, pulling out an incredible win after scoring 11 points in just four innings, beating Thetford 14-13.
Down 13-3 at the bottom of the 5th inning and missing their senior first base player who was out with a broken thumb, senior left fielder Meg Bezio led the charge to get Lamoille back in the game, with the whole bench stepping up to help in the outfield and at bat, according to coach Deb Morin.
Sophomore Jada Jones had three RBI. Sophomore pitcher Evelyn McAdoo had nine strikeouts and hit a double, a single and had an RBI. Senior Olivia Demag had a home run, four RBIs and stole two bases.
