Though the final score was closer, for the second time this season the Brock Lady Eagles used a late rally to defeat visiting rival Peaster 3-2 in a District 7-3A softball game.
Anarenee Beyer scored on a throwing error in the bottom of the seventh as the Lady Eagles remained undefeated in district at 8-0 (20-6 overall). Peaster fell to 5-4 (15-10-1 overall).
"We didn't play our best tonight but I'm very proud of the kids for how they handled adversity and how they did enough to get the win," Brock coach Ryan Starnes said.
Mattye Tyler pitched a three-hitter for Brock, walking two and striking out six over seven innings. She also had two hits with a double and RBI.
