CHAPEL HILL — The Forrest Lady Rockets fell to the Green Hill Hawks on Tuesday in a 7-3 loss at the Field of Dreams.
The Lady Hawks struck early, putting two runs on the board in the top of the first frame.
Green Hill added to its early lead in the top of the second, loading the bases for Maliyah Wilkins, who grounded out to second scoring Alyx Frost.

Thanks to a Green Hill error and a wild pitch, Briley Burnham landed on third in the bottom of the second with only one out, ultimately scoring on a single from Ella Chilton.
With bases loaded and two outs, Maggie Daughrity reached on an error and scored pinch runner Maddy Ille, Forrest closing the gap, 5-2.
