In a rematch of last year's Regional Final, but this time on their home diamond, the Lady Macks (17-6, 11-3 Western Cloverbelt Conference) plated an opening inning run against the Lancers (14-6,12-5 Dairyland Conference), but were held scoreless in the second.
Though it looked like a pitchers' duel might ensue, in the bottom of the third the Lady Macks broke through with 4 runs and never looked back, ending the game early via a Josie Witkowski two-run double, and advancing to the Sectional Semi-Final.
Senior Becca Baier went 3-4 at the plate with 3 RBI, junior Morgan Wirtz was 2-3 with a base on balls and 3 RBI of her own, and junior Aubrey Dorn clobbered a two-run homer on her birthday to help put the game out of reach. In the circle, junior pitcher Katie Ruf was nothing short of brilliant, striking out twelve in a scintillating performance.
