ORIENT — A back and forth battle featuring four lead changes saw the Warriorettes come out on top.
Seymour needed seventh-inning heroics to defeat Moravia last week and they were able to do the same to Orient-Macksburg on Tuesday.

The Warriorettes started their comeback by tying the game up with one run in the fifth and one in the sixth but Orient-Macksburg looked to spoil it with a run in the bottom of the sixth. Then Seymour once again brought the seventh-inning rally, bringing across two runs to take a 6-5 lead before closing out the game to get the win.
Hannah Hinners and Ori Trimble both had two RBIs while Thayda Houser got the win after giving up five runs, three earned, on four hits with five walks and 11 strikeouts in seven innings pitched.
