Covington jumped on Munford early Monday night, but the Lady Cougars waged a comeback in the latter innings to pull out a 7-3 non-district win in Covington. 

The Lady Chargers (4-8) scored three times in the bottom of the first inning and held the lead into the fifth inning. 

But Munford (12-5) scored two runs in the sixth inning to take a 4-3 lead and added three more in the top of the seventh to all but put the game out of reach. 

Senior Hannah Clifton went all seven innings for Covington and allowed just seven hits, but took the loss.

“I thought that was some great pitching by Hannah,” said Covington head coach Matthew Shearon. “It wasn't really until near the end when Munford started to get some hits. We've just got to learn how to finish games … I thought we competed well.”

Munford sophomore Sam Scott went the distance for Covington to pick up her eighth win of the season. After a rough first inning, she finished strong, allowing just three hits. 

Lady Cougar senior Jodie Duncan had her first home run of the season. 

“We had a bad game, especially defensively, against Dyer County last week,” said Shearon, who's team made just one error Monday. “I thought our defense looked a lot better.” 

Brighton routed First Assembly Christian School on Monday at home 15-0 to move to 6-5 on the season. 

Maddy Cox homered, singled and drove in three runs to pace Brighton and Marissa Moss added a pair of doubles. Alex Griffin and Lauren Kinney also doubled. 

Moss pitched a three-inning one-hitter for Brighton to collect the win. 

The Lady Cardinals split a pair of tournament games in Murfreesboro last Friday. 

Seeley Layne was 2 for 3 with a double and two RBIs in a 5-4 win over Zion-Benton. 

Raygan Huffman had two singles and RBI Moss, Ali Christmas and Anna McIntyre each added singles. 

Becky Judy struck out six over seven innings to earn the win. 

Smyrna defeated Brighton 7-2. 

Sam Berryhill singled twice and drove in a run for Brighton and Alex Griffin singled home Brighton's other run. 

Layne took the loss.
