Trailing by six runs going into the fourth inning, the Tumwater High School softball team dug in for a dramatic comeback.
Junior catcher Kelsey Killough hit a game-winning three-run homer in the eighth inning for a 14-13 victory over Centralia on Tuesday just after the Thunderbirds had seen their deficit slip to two.
Killough drove in five runs overall off two hits in a Tumwater game that featured nearly as many errors for them (eight) as hits (10).
"We didn't play well but the girls hung in there," Tumwater coach Doug Nedrow said.
Never miss a local story.
Tumwater was down at four different points in the game: 2-1 after the first, 10-7 after the fifth, 11-10 going into the bottom of the seventh and again in the eighth.
"You would call that an ugly (win) but it's a (win.)"
