DICKSON — Dickson County turned back Wilson Central at the door of the state tournament with a 5-2 sectional win Friday afternoon.
The Lady Cougars broke a scoreless tie with a fourth-inning fielder’s choice. But the big blow as a two-out three-run double in the bottom of the fifth.
Central got a run back in the top of the sixth when Kaylee Richetto’s sacrifice fly scored her sister, Sydnee, who had doubled off the center-field fence.
Dickson County got a damaging run in the bottom of the sixth on a two-out hit for a 6-1 lead.
The Lady Wildcats got their final run in the seventh when Grayce Guethlein walked. Her courtesy runner, Rylee Younggren, scored on a hit to right field by Alaina Morris, but it wasn’t enough as Central finished a 25-15-2 season.
