Hoping to nudge the Lady Rockets (19-6, 10-1) out of first place in District 9A, the Moore County Raiderettes (11-7, 6-3) put up a valiant effort on Tuesday but fell short despite the efforts of a seventh inning RBI by Mariah Ward.
Moore County fell 4-1 in Lynchburg. The Lady Forrest pitcher allowed just one run in seven innings. Herron struck out seven, walked one and surrendered just four hits.
The Lady Rocket bats got hot in the third inning when they scored on two doubles and two singles.
