The Palmyra softball team surrendered six runs in the seventh inning and lost on a walk-off single at Centralia on Thursday night.

Centralia hit a pair of home runs in the final frame and scored its last four runs with two outs for a 9-8 comeback victory in the Clarence Cannon Conference matchup. 

Ella Holiman connected for a two-run homer to cut Centralia's deficit to 8-5, and Mary Kate Bennett hit a three-run shot to tie the score. Lynsie Curtis delivered an RBI single to drive in Carter Hawkins for the winning tally.

Palmyra falls to 9-13 on the season and finishes 4-3 in the CCC.

The visitors plated seven runs in the second inning to take a big lead early. Megan Stone hit a three-run homer to key the rally, while Lauren Van Tress and Morgan Ingram contributed RBI doubles for Palmyra. 

But Palmyra was unable to move a runner past first base the next four innings, not until Ingram reached via an error and Cameron O'Brien drove her home with a single in the top of the seventh.

Centralia scored once in the first and twice in the fourth before its offensive explosion in the seventh.
