The Lady Indians banged out 14 hits, scored in every inning but the sixth and played stellar defense, but still came up a little short Thursday in London.

Madison Central built an early lead before South Laurel stormed back to pick up a 13-12 win. The Lady Indians scored five times in the fifth inning to take a 10-5 lead, but South Laurel got six runs in the sixth to re-take the lead.

With the loss, Central falls to 7-12 on the season.

“That’s probably the best hitting team we’ve faced all year,” Central coach Daniel Rogers said.

In the first inning, Katie Lamb singled and Michele Smith ripped an RBI double off the wall. Carlee Carroll walked in the second and scored after a Kirsten Spillman single.

Central got two more runs in the third. Smith doubled off the fence again, Ashleigh Livingston singled and Carroll added a sacrifice fly.

In the fourth, Spillman doubled and Morgan Winkler had an RBI single.

In the fifth, Livingston reached on an error, Carroll singled and Jodi Clines walked to load the bases. Ashley McQuarter and Spillman both had RBI singles, Winkler walked and Lamb added a sacrifice fly.

In the seventh, Clines singled and scored on a double by Spillman. Winkler then added a RBI single that got Central back within a run.

South Laurel escaped with the win when Smith hit a long fly ball that proved to be the final out.

Haylee King started for Central and went the distance, picking up the loss.

The Lady Indians had just one error.

Central will open play in the Indians Softball Bash at 6 p.m. today in Richmond against Boyle County.
