On a beautiful day for a ball game the Kane Lady Wolves softball team put together maybe their best game of the year as they knocked off Brockway 10-9 in a 7-inning thriller.
In the first two innings, both pitchers seemed to have the batters off balance as Kane's Kyla Hoag had four strikeouts while Brockway's pitcher recorded five. Brockway was able to take an early one run lead in the top of the first. The Lady Rovers' second hitter got a single then stole second and went to third on a wild pitch. She scored the game's first run as the next batter got a sacrifice fly.
In the top of the third the visitors took advantage of some fielding miscues and with a big triple mixed in were able to score three runs to give them a 4-0 lead.
Kane didn't hang their heads and they made some noise of their own with the help of a few walks and wild pitches tied the game with the big hit of the inning being a triple by Sam Ferranto. She came home to tie the score 4-4 on a Cheyenne Wheatley fielders choice.
Hoag would retire the first two batters in the top of the fourth but then another fielding error gave a little confidence to the Lady Rovers and they put together three straight hits and recorded three more runs all with two outs.
