It took six and a half innings to get the hits to fall but finally, after trailing 10-5 to begin the bottom of the seventh, the Lady Starfires managed to find the holes.
South Adams put up a miraculous six on the scoreboard to shock the Jay County Patriots, 11-10 in their home opener on Tuesday night.
Down five runs heading into their last three outs, South Adams seemed all but finished but Lauren Smith started off the epic comeback by reaching first on a throwing error by relief pitcher, Abbey Vance.
After weeks of unusually cold weather resulting in a mixture of snow and rain, then a spring break thrown in the mix, Monday night's opening day game against Norwell was the first time the South Adams Starfires baseball team had a chance to play on their diamond at Harry F. Anderson Field.
The result was almost a surprising one until the Knights put up three big runs in the top of the seventh to edge out the Stars, 6-5, improving to 3-1 on the season.
