MONROE, La. — Adams County Christian School was just three outs away from remaining undefeated, but River Oaks School had other ideas.

The Lady Mustangs rallied for four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to escape with an 8-7 win over the Lady Rebels Thursday afternoon.

“Our girls fought extremely hard. They came back from a 4-2 deficit (after three innings of play) to go up 7-4. That’s the best team we’ve seen so far,” ACCS head coach Forrest Foster said.
