Bailey Hatfield made a defensive play to fool the lead runner at 3rd base and keep it a scoreless inning. Plymouth scored it’s first two runs of the game with a lead off single by Zoe Keilman, followed by a single from Katie Berg. Samantha Wojcik hit the ball to the 3rd baseman who went for Keilman as she slid in safe at home.
With a 3-2 game, Goshen battled to regain a cushion with their lead by scoring 4 runs in the 3rd inning. The Pilgrims did not allow this to affect them as they scored 5 runs in the bottom of the 3rd inning to tie the game at 7-7.
In the 4th, Plymouth took the lead 8-7, but Goshen scored their final run in the 5th inning to make it 8 – 8. The final score was decided in the 5th inning as Plymouth took the lead by tacking on 2 more runs.
