Kankakee Valley High School
Lowell High School
In a see-saw battle between conference foes. The visiting Kougars held on for a slim 13-12, darkness shortened contest. With KV leading 3-0 in the 3rd, Lowell’s, Haley Boylan hammered a solo shot to center, followed 2 batters later by a 2-run bomb from Gaby Malone to knot the game at 3. The Kougars plated 2 in the top of the 4th, but Lowell answered with a 2-run homer from Riley Shilling to tie it up again. KV then scored 8 times in the top of the 5th, thanks in part to a 2-run homer from freshman Emma Sark and a 3 run round-tripper by pitcher Emma Maple, to seemingly put the game out of reach. Lowell would have none of that as they scored 6 in the bottom of the frame. KV did not score in the 6th and Lowell managed only 1as the game was then called due to darkness.
