Portage High School
Kankakee Valley High School
In the warmest weather of the softball season, the host Kougars fended off a furious rally from the Lady Indians. Portage tied the game in the top of the 7th when second baseman Lexi Zych doubled home Serena Flanagan and Madison Perez. The Kougars failed to score in the bottom of the seventh and for the second time in one day, Kankakee Valley found itself fighting it out in extra innings. In the top of the eighth Portage’s Juliana Hall reached third with 2 outs, but could not score. In the bottom of the 8th, Kougar left fielder, Kaylee Barrett singled. Ashley Fisher followed with another single. After a fielder’s choice, and with one out, second baseman Lindsey Stokes crushed a double into the left centerfield gap to bring home Fisher with the winning run; the Kougars’ second walk-off win of the day.
