"Two very good teams took the field today and battled to the end," said Brandon-Evansville head coach Tim Pattrin. "We ended up coming up short on the second game, but our girls never gave up."

In the opener, Ashby took an early 4-1 lead after three innings, but Brandon-Evansville chipped away, scoring twice in the fourth and again in the sixth to lead 5-4, but the Arrows tied the game in the bottom of the seventh with a solo run, sending the game to extra innings.

The Chargers capped the game with three runs in the ninth, allowing the Arrows a solo run in the bottom of the inning.

Carlie Steffenson earned the first game win for Brandon-Evansville as she allowed seven hits and just one earned run, walking two and striking out five.

Game two was a barn burner as both teams took advantage of a surge in hitting.

Ashby jumped to a 13-3 lead after three and a half innings, but Brandon-Evansville added five in the bottom of the fourth and another three in the sixth.

It was Ashby's four-run seventh that kept the game out of reach.

In the second game, Paige Nelson claimed the win as she went the first four innings, giving up eight earned runs on eight hits and five walks, striking out five.
