On Thursday, the Hazard Lady Bulldogs hosted the South Floyd Lady Raiders. The Lady Bulldogs went up early, and held off a late rally by the Lady Raiders to take the 7-5 win.

South Floyd scored all of their runs with a five run rally in the fifth inning. Hazard countered with two runs in the bottom of the frame, bring the score to 7-5 in favor of the Lady Bulldogs.
Neither team scored down the stretch, giving Hazard the 7-5 win.
