On Monday, the Perry County Central Lady Commodores hosted the Breathitt County Lady Bobcats. Things did not start well for the Lady Commodores, but they were able to rally midway through the game, and pulled out the 15-5 win.

However, the third inning would be kind to the Lady Commodores as they outscored the Lady Bobcats 5-1 in the frame, and took the 7-5 lead. Perry Central would not look back at this point.

The final three innings would belong to the Lady Commodores as they shot past the Lady Bobcats with a 8-0 explosion. The rally lifted them to the 15-5 win. Lauren Amburgey got the win on the mound, going six innings with 7 hits, 5 runs, 1 walk and 5 strikeouts.
