Ben Davis High School
Cathedral High School
The Lady Irish softball team defeated Ben Davis 2-0. With the game scoreless in the bottom of the 5th, Liz Spiech singled to right and advanced to 2nd on a passed ball. Spiech scored on Irish pinch hitter Emily Timberman’s fly ball to right that was mishandled by the Giants’ outfielder. Lily Jennings reached base on a single up the middle. With runners on 1st and 3rd, Jennings got into a rundown while attempting to steal 2nd base allowing pinch runner Ellie Daly to score from 3rd.
Ben Davis rallied in the 7th with runners on 1st and 3rd, but a well executed pickoff play from catcher Grace Lorsung to 3rd baseman Meghan Lee ended the game in dramatic fashion.
Annika Garwood threw a complete game for the Irish striking out 7 batters while surrendering just 3 hits.
