The fourth time was a charm thanks to a third straight win.

The Kossuth Lady Aggies got back over the .500 mark for the first time since their season opener with a 13-3 win at New Site on Friday.

KHS, which opened the season with a 10-2 win over Tishomingo County, has now won eight of 11 games since going 2-6 over the first two weeks of the season.

Carleigh Mills, the pitching star in the first two wins of the streak, backed Kristen Devers (4-3) at the plate with a game-high four hits, including two triples. The junior drove in a trio of runs.

“We played on their baseball field and I know one of her triples would’ve been out on a softball field,” said KHS Head Coach Steve Lyles.

Kossuth (10-9) edged out the Lady Royals 1-0 in their previous meeting this season. The Lady Aggies hung and eight spot in the third, setting the stage for a run-rule shortened contest and allowing Lyles to use 21 players.

Mills struck out 11 tossed a two-hit shutout against Booneville on Thursday, a win that bumped KHS to 4-1 in Division 1-3A play and all but assured Kossuth a spot in the playoffs.

The righty no-hit Houston (Tenn.) Saturday in the Morris Hunter Tournament in Southaven. Mills has allowed just two hits and set down 20 batters on strikes in her last two outings.

Kossuth returns to action Monday at Alcorn Central in a Division 1-3A contest.

• At Iuka, Corinth got a combined one-hitter from McKenzie Patterson and Colby Cox to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Lady Warriors got all their runs in the first inning of a 2-0 contest, improving to 11-8 overall and 3-4 in 1-4A play.
