Eagles Win Thriller in Marinette

Southern Door won their first regional championship since 2012 as they upset third seeded Marinette, 6-5, at Scott Paper Field in Marinette on Friday Night.  The Eagles took the lead for good in the top of the fourth inning as Tehya Bertrand, Gabby Atkins and Erin Tadych all had two out base hits and Faith Overbeck had an RBI single in the fifth inning as the lead stretched to 5-2.  However, the Marines scored two runs in their half of the fifth inning to make it 5-4.  But Southern Door answered back in the sixth as Tadych scored on a steal of home for a 6-4 lead with what proved to be the winning run.  Marinette had the tying runs on base in the bottom of the 7th inning but Megan Pavlik pitched around a couple of errors to secure the win.  Tadych finished with three hits (2 doubles) while Atkins and Bertrand had two hits each.  Hannah Mallien pitched in relief for the win with Pavlik earning the save for Southern Door.  Chloe Lambie had three hits in the loss for Marinette.  Southern Door will play at Luxemburg-Casco  on Tuesday.  (WDOR)
