CHICKAMAUGA, Ga. — There are a lot of layers to the GHSA softball season, but some of those layers hold a little more weight than others.

The second half of the regular season in Region 6-AAA started this week, and LaFayette had a chance to distance itself from fellow league heavyweight Gordon Lee on Thursday night. Having won the teams' earlier matchup, a victory would have essentially given the Lady Ramblers a three-game edge in the standings.

That, however, didn't happen as the host Lady Trojans rallied to win 10-5 after trailing 5-4, tying LaFayette atop the stout region.

Gordon Lee (16-4, 7-2), which led 4-0 after three innings before the Lady Ramblers (13-4, 7-2) responded, tied the game with a single run in the fifth and used home runs from Kate Chambers, McCartney Angel and Gracie Helton to break it open with a five-run sixth.
