It was a beautiful day for softball at Ranney Park on Saturday. Game on saw Bronson get out to an early 2-0 lead on Quincy. The lead held up giving Bronson the win a a spot in the Regional Finals.
Game two was Lansing Catholic vs Laingsburg. Two evenly matched teams. Laingsburg open the scoring in their first at bat scoring on a hit and then a throwing error by the Cougars. The Cougars responded in thier first at bat pushing one run across to tie the game at 1-1 after the first.
The scoreboard was full of zeros as neither team could get and advantage. Brianna Babcock was pitching well with great speed and location.
It was still tied 1-1 going into the bottom of the seventh with the Cougars coming to bat for their last chance to win the game without going into extra innings!The Cougars got their first two runnners on with no outs. Laingsburg then loaded the bases with an intentional walk. With the infield pulled in and Maria Perry at the plate, Coach Waite called time-out to talk to his batter to dispense some crucial advice. Whatever the coach said worked as Perry lined a hard single to score the winning run and a spot in the days’ final game.
Bronson is a strong team with a great pitcher and a strong hitting line-up. Bronson scored twice in the first inning to lead 2-0 and never looked back as the won the regional 10-0 over the Cougars.
The Lansing Catholic girls end their season with 20+ wins with a District Title and a spot in the regional final game. It was a great season for the team as their level of play got better and better as the season moved forward. The seniors will be missed but there are lots of returning veterans to push the team next season!
