GENEVA – A five-run third inning sealed the win for the Troy Angels as they defeated Enterprise 10-6 in the Dixie Softball district tournament on Tuesday.

“We hit the ball really well,” said head coach Larry Sanders. “We had three balls hit over the right-fielder’s head, which really busted the game open.”

Troy was leading 4-3 after the second inning when the bats came alive, he said. Five runs later, the Angels had a 9-3 lead, which they held through the fifth inning.
