A huge second inning pushed Elgin past Highland by a 10-2 margin Monday evening.
Both teams scored one run in the first inning and the Scots added one in the top of the second to take a 2-1 lead. However, the Comets responded with seven runs in their half of the second and added two more in the third to take an eight-run lead which they would maintain the rest of the way.
Lucy Smith was the pitcher of record for the Scots, with Abby O’Bryant also pitching. They combined to strike out four and walk one. O’Bryant only gave up one hit over her four innings of relief.
