Cedar Key's Lady Shark softball team dominated the Meadowbrook Lady Mustangs on Feb. 27, winning by the 10-run rule. They began with a rocky start, letting the Mustangs advance with a run, but they fired up their bats and started to rack up runs on the score board. 

Lady Shark's pitcher, Ashlyn Allen, pitched a great game. With some mistakes in its defense, the Lady Sharks shook it off and fought hard for its win. The team plays again on Thursday, March 6, against Bronson at their field in Rosewood, at 5 p.m.
