Greylock jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the first inning, but Dalton battled back with four-run rallies in the third and fourth innings to get back in the game.
Lane hit her first double of the game to drive in a run in the first-inning rally, which started with a leadoff single from Sadie Stuebner.
Elin Reinhard delivered a big blow in the middle of the rally with a two run single.
Greylock tacked on five more runs in the second to go ahead, 17-2. Stuebner drove in a pair in that inning on her way to a four-RBI night.
Gianna Witek struck out six over the first three innings and held Dalton to two runs in the first two innings to allow the Thunder to build its big lead.
But the visitors struck for four in the third, when Abby Munday ripped a two-run single to left.
In the fourth inning, Dalton continued to hit the ball well, getting an RBI double from Layla Soules and an RBI triple from Mallory Radwich to cut the deficit to 10.
But Lane allowed just one run in the fifth, and Witek returned to the circle to deliver 1-2-3 innings in the sixth and seventh.
Maddie Lampiasi and Kaylee Drew handled the pitching for Dalton.
Each team turned in a double play defensively.
In the fourth, Dalton’s Drew snagged a liner back to the circle and threw to first to double off a runner. In the sixth, Greylock shortstop K.J. Livingstone caught a line drive and threw to first.
Dalton will get plenty of chances to get some revenge in the next few weeks. The two teams are part of a three-team age group that includes the Berkshire Force out of Pittsfield; each team will play two games against the other two teams in the division before the three-team playoff at the end of July.
Dalton Tuesday goes to the Doyle Complex to play the Force. The Thunder visits the force next Wednesday.
