ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Lone Tree had retired five consecutive Mid-Prairie batters via strikeout when Anna Vilovchik stepped into the batter’s box, trailing 2-0 with two outs in the fifth inning of Friday’s game.

She hit a 1-0 pitch into the outfield and ran to first base, bringing a spark to the Golden Hawk lineup. Caitlyn Riggan and Kitty Conway singled to put the first Mid-Prairie run on the scoreboard. Clarice Murhpy delivered the go-ahead double and Abby Tornow drove in two runs with a triple to left center. Tornow was the sixth consecutive batter to reach base with two outs.

“We’ve done this a lot in the season, we’ve had to come from behind and win,” Mid-Prairie coach Kara Suckow said. “It’s not a matter of ‘if’, it’s a matter of ‘when.’

“I knew that eventually we’d get the hits rolling. We just needed to see a couple go through the outfield and then it was contagious through the lineup.”

Lone Tree scored a run on an Abby Buckman single and three walks in the fourth inning, but the Golden Hawks’ sophomore starter Cassidy Rourke got a strikeout with the bases loaded to limit the damage.

Buckman allowed just five hits and a walk, and struck out 12 for Lone Tree. She drove in Chloe Jacque with a double for the game’s first run in the first inning of play.
