Benet Academy goes for its second straight win facing a tough opponent in St. Francis. Winner takes the regional crown.
Spartan pitcher Shelby Winkelman had a no hitter going in the fourth before Alexis Potapczak crushed a home run to straight away center, but Benet Academy still trailed 3-1 at the time.
The fifth would prove to be a big inning for Benet as Elena Stevenson drove in a pair to tie the game at three before Allie Goettsch drove in the go ahead run.
Down the stretch, Winkelman gave herself some help, clearing the bases with a double as St. Francis takes the 8-4 win.
