East Wake softball comes back from dead to top Clayton

The Warriors spotted the visiting Comets a seven-run lead after 3 ½ innings, but recovered to cut the lead to a run after five and then scored a pair of runs on a one-out error in the seventh, walking off with an 8-7 victory at Carver Field. The win put the Warriors (8-5-1, 8-3) into second place in the Greater Neuse River 4A conference while Clayton (11-6, 8-4) fell to third. The result gave East a sweep of their two-game season series, as the Warriors had won more comfortably 7-2 on March 27 in Clayton.
