HATTIESBURG — Taylorsville needed a dramatic shift in momentum to force Game 3 of the MHSAA Class 1A championship. The Tartars trailed 4-1 through five innings in Thursday’s Game 2 matchup against Vardaman. Rams pitcher Makynlie Jones was dealing until Taylorsville found new life in the sixth. 

The Tartars — led by a two-RBI single from senior Latia Keyes — rattled off six hits to take a 7-4 victory at the Southern Miss Softball Complex. Less than 24 hours later, Taylorsville’s bats stayed hot in a series-clinching 9-5 victory over Vardaman. 

“We could have given up when we were down 4-1 and just quit,” Coach Adam Evans said. “We didn’t and we strung together a couple (hits). At some point we had to string together a couple hits because we weren’t striking out.
