Red Boiling Springs freshman Nautica Goolsby drove in a first-inning run with a groundout in the Lady Bulldogs' 6-5 loss to visiting Trousdale County.

RED BOILING SPRINGS -- The Red Boiling Springs softball squad scored four first-inning runs but couldn't hold on, suffering a 6-5 loss to visiting Trousdale County in the Lady Bulldogs' regular-season finale on April 30.

The two teams played in Hartsville on April 9, with the Lady Jackets capturing an 11-8 victory on Hannah Hailey's walk-off home run.

In the rematch, two errors in the bottom of the first inning allowed RBS sophomore Jasmine Pruitte and senior Maribel Mireles to score.

Then, senior Allison Deckard singled, and sophomore Reyna Ruiz eventually scored on freshman Nautica Goolsby's groundout. Deckard eventually scored the fourth run thanks to a wild pitch.

After Trousdale County produced a run in the top of the fourth, Kirsten Eversole hit a grand slam in the five-run fifth, giving the Lady Jackets a 6-4 lead.

Deckard -- a Motlow State Community College signee -- hit a home run in the bottom the sixth, her seventh of the season.

However, Hailey worked a perfect seventh inning, striking out the first two hitters before the game ended with a groundout.

The two teams combined for just seven hits. Deckard had two hits, and Pruitte had the other one for her squad.

There was a stretch of 17 consecutive outs for RBS hitters that spanned from the first inning into the sixth, prior to Deckard's home run. Of the final 22 batters, 21 were retired.

The Lady Bulldogs fell to 8-6 in District 6-A play and finished in fourth place in 6-A.

Trousdale County won the 6-A regular-season title with a 12-2 league mark.
