Posted

Dresden
After celebrating Senior Day, the Lady Rebels played host to Dresden in a close contest from start to finish.

McKenzie scored first in the bottom of the first inning taking a 1-0 lead. The next two innings went scoreless until Dresden tied it with a solo run in the top of the fourth inning. The Lady Rebels regained the lead with two runs in the bottom of the fourth taking a 3-1 lead. Dresden made it 3-2 with a solo run in the top of the fifth inning and tied the game 3-3 with another solo run in the top of the sixth inning. McKenzie made it a winner with Savannah Davis scoring the winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning

Payton Ognibene went the distance for McKenzie giving up six hits, three runs, walking three, and striking out four.

Houston County
The Lady Rebels hit the road on Wednesday to Houston County for their final regular season game and last district game losing 5-4.

McKenzie scored early with three runs in the top of the first inning and then neither team scored for the next three innings until the Lady Rebels extended their lead to 4-0 with a run in the top of the fifth inning. The Lady Irish scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to cut the Lady Rebel lead in half 4-2. McKenzie failed to score in the top of the seventh inning and Houston County scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh to take the potential win away from the Lady Rebels.

The Lady Rebels totaled six hits for the day with Payton Ognibene leading the way with a pair of base hits driving in a run and scoring one. Anna Robinson got a base hit and scored while Katie Chesser did the same. Briley Auvenshine nailed a triple that drove in two runs and scored a run and Jaden Barton got on base with a base hit.

Chesser went nearly the whole game on the mound giving up five runs on six hits, walking two and striking out five batters.
