GRETNA, Va. — Chatham put together a two-run rally in the bottom of the sixth to pull past Gretna 5–2 in Dogwood District action Monday night.

A tight game throughout, the two sides entered the sixth knotted at 2–2. Sophomore Nicole Emerson broke the deadlock with her triple to left field that scored sophomore Michaela Willis and sophomore Bralynn Patterson doubled down on the Cavaliers’ lead with her single to left.

Sophomore Anna Whitlow rounded out the scoring when she scored on an error on sophomore Trinity Custer’s ground ball to second in the seventh.

Chatham (10–5, 5–4 Dogwood) struck first, scoring a pair of runs in the third to take a 2–0 lead. Senior Abigail Owen got the Cavaliers on the board with her RBI groundout and freshman Cora Liggon made it a two-run game with her run-scoring double to center.

Gretna (3–14, 3–6) struck back with a pair of runs in the fourth to knot the score. Marihlyn East got the Hawks on the board with her RBI double to left and made it a three-run contest when she scored on an error on Ava Graye Simpson’s ground ball.

Whitlow and Liggon paced Chatham with a pair of hits apiece while Emerson, Patterson, Owen, Custer and Liggon drove in runs for the Cavaliers.

Liggon was masterful in the circle, striking out 15 while allowing four hits and two runs in seven innings pitched.

Chatham returns to action Wednesday when it hosts William Campbell in Dogwood action at 6 p.m.
