Lyndonville battled back to tie the game by scoring twice in the third inning on an RBI single by winning pitcher Stacy Buckland and an error. A walk and a sacrifice bunt by Gracie Johnson set up the opportunity.
The Lady Tigers then took the lead on an RBI single by Buckland in the fourth frame which followed a pair of walks.
Lyndonville later put a lock on the win by scoring three times with two out in the sixth inning on a triple by Megan Krisher, a single by Anna Lewis and an error.
In the circle, Buckland scattered 6 hits and struck out 2. She also started a key double play to get out of trouble in the second inning.
