Lady Horns rally for seven runs in bottom of seventh in storybook championship run
Trailing 7-0 in the bottom of the seventh and final inning, the dreams of Payson High’s first state softball championship were slipping. But then miraculously, the never-say-die Lady Longhorns staged one of the most amazing rallies ever witnessed in prep softball to edge a gutsy Mingus Marauder team 8-7. The win advances the Lady Horns to the final weekend of playoff games this Friday and Saturday — when the best softball team in Payson history must defeat two undefeated powerhouses on consecutive days to win the state championship.
