Union Grove of Wisconsin scored again in the last of the sixth on a double by Anna McClelland and an opposite field triple down the right field line by senior Emily McClelland. A shortstop Emily McClelland also made a couple of very fine defensive plays.
Broncos pitcher Alice Fitzpatrick threw a two hit shutout and struck out 10 in her 7 innings complete softball game. After the game she was quoted as saying, “My rise ball was working pretty good but basically it was how we set the pitches up”.
McKenna Larsen struck out 8, walked one in her 6 innings on the mound. She struck out Alecia Faber in the third inning. McKenna Larsen threw fastballs and an assortment of off-speed pitches.
Alecia Faber, a junior catcher, lined her RBI single on a 2-2 count. Anna McClelland had 2 hits in 3 at bats, one run scored, and a double.
