Indians come from behind to defeat Hornets

April 10th, 2012 in News

The Russellville High School baseball teams hosted St. Elizabeth April 3, where the varsity Indians came from behind to defeat the Hornets 8-4.

Russsellville trailed 4-3 in the top of the fifth inning, then answered with three runs to lead 6-4 going into the sixth inning. The Indians added two runs in the sixth to claim the win.

"We're still trying to improve and sometimes we take a step or two back before we go forward," Russellville Coach Lucas Branson said. "That happened a little bit early in the game, but the kids kept competing, like we do in practice, and came up with some big hits in the fifth and sixth innings to get the win."
