PARISH — The Mexico varsity softball team pulled off a dramatic comeback for the second time in three days on Thursday, overcoming an eight-run deficit to defeat Altmar-Parish-Williamstown 14-10.

The Tigers trailed 8-0 entering the fifth inning, and faced a 10-6 deficit heading into the final frame. An error brought home Mexico’s first run of the inning, with a single by Abby Toland scoring two, a double by Kylee Urquhart bringing the Tigers within one, and a two-run double by Hailey Comstock giving Mexico an 11-10 lead.

A two-run double by Briana Urquhart made it 13-10, and an RBI single by Lilly Beverley gave Mexico all the insurance necessary, with Comstock tossing a scoreless bottom half to lock up the win. The victory comes just two days after the Tigers overcame a 7-0 deficit against Skaneateles.

Briana Urquhart was 3-5 at the plate with a home run, a double, and five RBIs. Cuyler went 2-4 with two RBIs, while Comstock was 1-5 with the go-ahead, two-run double.
