The second-seeded Chatfield's gals put it on 7-seed Fillmore Central-Lanesboro early in a quarterfinal game of the Section 1AA softball tournament. With a 5-run first and a 2-run second, the Gophers seemed well on their way (up 7 to nil) to a quick, possibly inning-shortened, win. But in the third, FCL scored a couple of runs. They added another in the 4th and two-more in the 5th, ousting Gopher starting pitcher Grace Sagdalen. With the score 8-5, Katie Jech entered and mostly silenced the Falcon's bats. She allowed just 1 run on 2 hits over the final three innings. The Gophers added a run, out-hit the Falcons 13 to 6, and walked away victorious, 9-6. Senior Erika LaPlante was thorough in her game-book-stuffing (3-4, 2B, SB, RBI, 4 R). MaKenzie Miller and Tori Woltz (2-4, 2B, 2 RBI's) provided run-scoring offense. Alyssa Nihart also notched a pair of hits. Chelsea Rislove was 2-4 for FCL, who finished their season 7-13.
