The Trenton Lady Bulldogs dream of back-to-back District 15 championships was thwarted by the Cameron Lady Dragons, who rallied with six runs over three innings to win 7-4, in softball action broadcast Saturday morning on Hot Country Z 101.7.

Things looked great for the top-seeded Lady Bulldogs early, when THS jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning.

With one out in the frame, Megan Lynch singled to center and was forced out at second when Ally Ockenfels grounded to third. Lexie Tolson and Whitley Richman followed with singles to load the bases. McKinley Hurley then stepped up to the dish, looking to give Trenton the lead:

Cameron battled back to get a run in the third and tied the game in the sixth inning with three walks and a pair of Lady Dragon hits in the inning, including a two-run double by Maizey Hughes that cut the lead to 4-3. A wild pitch by Trenton starter Mallory Hooyman tied the game at 4 going into the bottom of the sixth.

After another scoreless Trenton frame, the Lady Bulldogs were able to hold Cameron scoreless in the top of the 7th inning, opening up an opportunity to win the district title with a run in the bottom of the seventh.

Trump drew a one out walk followed by a two-out single by Cassidy Cotton and a walk to Megan Lynch to load the bases. However, Trenton was unable to push the winning run across when Ally Ockenfels grounded out to short stop on a close play at first to end the inning. Trenton argued that the Cameron first baseman had pulled her foot off of the base on the play, but the "out" call stuck, and extra innings ensued.

Playing in extra innings for the second time this season and the third time in the last two years against THS, Cameron took advantage of a one out walk, cracking three straight singles, another walk and another single to score three times and take a 7-4 lead.

With their seasons on the line in the bottom of the eighth inning, Trenton did not go quietly, but was unable to score after Richman singled with one out.

For Trenton High School, Richman led the offensive attack going 3-4 with a run, Trump finished 2-2 with an RBI and 2 walks, while Cotton, Lynch and Tolson were all 1-3, and Hurley 1-5 with a run and 2 RBI.

Hooyman took the loss, giving up all seven runs on 12 hits while striking out 3, finishing 13-4 on the season. The Lady Bulldogs finish the season 15-5.

In remarks after the game, Trenton Head Coach John Cowling said, "This was a disappointing end to our season, especially with the way things looked early on in the game. I feel like that shouldn't take away with what this group accomplished this season, we started with so many new faces in different places in August. This group of girls grew so much as a team from game 1 to game 20 and I'm proud of the way they fought all season long to continue our winning tradition. We lose a special group of seniors that have been huge contributors to our program for the last 4 seasons and did an amazing job leading a young, inexperienced team to a #1 seed in districts this year. They will be missed."

Cameron will play Smithville, a 4-3 district championship winner over Savannah, in the first-round of the Class 3 playoffs on Wednesday night. That game will be played at Cameron High School.
