Game Recap

In the top of the first of the championship game of the Kankakee Valley softball sectional, the host Kougars got a lead-off single from senior center fielder, McKenzie Adams. Catcher Maddie Swart followed with a sacrifice bunt to put Adams at second. Kougar pitcher, Emma Maple then drove the first pitch she saw over the right center field fence for a 2-run homer to give the Kougars an early lead over Hanover Central; the Class 3A’s number 2 ranked team.
KV tacked on another run in the third when Swart doubled and Maple ripped an RBI single to right field.
Maple (14-5) kept the Wildcats bats cool and the Kougar defense was stellar behind her. A relay throw by Hannah Cambe from the right field fence cut down a Hanover runner at the plate in the second inning. Cambe also gunned down a runner at third base when the runner attempted to tag and advance on a fly ball to right in the fifth inning.
The Kougars added 2 more runs in the seventh when Adams led off with a single, Swart followed with an RBI triple, and Maple followed her with an RBI double to put KV up 5-0.
Kankakee Valley overcame a couple of errors in the bottom of the frame to hold on for the 5-0 win and it second consecutive sectional title.
The Kougars ( 19-8) will host a one game regional on Tuesday, May 30th versus the winner of the Griffith sectional.
