Boone Grove’s ace pitcher, Kellie Marcheschi, kept the host Kougars’ bats silent through 4 innings while holding a 2 to 0 lead. In the bottom of the fifth, Kankakee Valley rallied. With two outs, catcher Maddie Swart singled. Left fielder Madey Flick singled to move Swart to third. Following a Flick stolen base, pitcher Emma Maple delivered a clutch double to drive in both runners and knot the game at two. In the top of the sixth, freshman pitcher, Mary Kate Shultz, entered the game with 2 outs and runners at first and second and pitched her team out of a jam. Schultz then shut the Wolves down in the top of the seventh to set up an opportunity for the host Kougars in the bottom of the frame. Shultz drew a one out walk. Then was replaced on the base paths by flex player Catherine Cavinder. Swart stepped to the plate and with Cavinder off with the pitch, Swart roped a sinking line drive that got by the center fielder allowing Cavinder to race home with the game winner. The Kougars take their 9 and 2 overall record to Munster Friday.
