MOBERLY — No. 5 seed Boonville scored two runs in the top of the 10th inning to knock off the No. 4 Fulton Lady Hornets softball team 4-2 in the Class 3, District 6 quarterfinals Wednesday.

Fulton — which had just four hits and committed five errors — ended the season with a 16-10 record. The Lady Hornets split their two meetings with Boonville during the regular season, bowing 10-7 on Sept. 21 at Fulton and then pounding the Lady Pirates 14-0 on Oct. 6 at Boonville.

The Lady Pirates (11-8) will now advance to a District 6 semifinal matchup against top-seeded Hallsville (18-3) at 5 p.m. today.

The Lady Hornets jumped in front Wednesday with a run in the bottom of the second when junior right fielder Rylee Caswell scored from third on a passed ball with two outs.

Boonville then pulled even at 1-all with a run in the top of the third. Fulton, though, regained the lead with a run in its half of the inning on senior first baseman Paige Clines' RBI fielder's choice with one out.

The Lady Hornets guarded that 2-1 edge until the Lady Pirates put up the tying run in the seventh to force extra innings. Boonville then finished off Fulton's season with the two runs in the 10th.

Clines went 1-for-3 with the RBI, while junior shortstop Kiah Pittman finished 1-for-2. Junior catcher Rylee Baker and senior left fielder Kayla Neal were both 1-for-4.

Senior starter Sydney Hedgpath threw a complete game in suffering the loss for the Lady Hornets. Hedgpath gave up four runs — three earned — while scattering only four hits, struck out five and walked one.
