Dearth lifts Darton over GMC in game one


The Darton softball team got some late game heroics from Melissa Dearth in the first of Tuesday's non-region match up against Georgia Military.  Dearth smacked a 3 run walk-off homer to in the 7th inning to lift the Lady Cavs over Georgia Military 6-5 in game one.

Georgia Military had taken a 5-1 lead in the 6th inning with a two run homer from Morgan Long.  Darton responded in the bottom of the inning when Holly Smith delivered a two RBI double to make the score 5-3.  In the 7th, Chelsea Showers sent a single to right to put the tying run at 1st before Dearth's monster bomb won it.  The win pushed Darton to 18-6 on the season going into game two.
