CORNERSVILLE — After falling in their season opener on Monday, the Cornersville Lady ‘Dawgs responded with a monster win over Moore County on Tuesday, blasting the Raiderettes, 12-1 in five innings.

Ward also drove in six runs and homered, and doubled.
Senior Alicia Polk also connected on a round-tripper and drove in four runs on the night.
The Lady ‘Dawgs scored in every run, except the fourth, and was highlighted by a five-run third inning.
