Lions Shock Eagles

Brillion rallied to beat Southern Door, 5-4, in an extra inning WIAA Division 3 softball sectional semi-final at Brillion on Tuesday.  The Eagles took the early lead when Erin Tadych doubled in Gabby Atkins in the top of the third inning.  But the Lions took the lead in the bottom of the inning on a sacrifice and an error.  Southern Door tied the game at 2-2 on a two out pinch hit single from Meghan LaCrosse that scored Kylie Neinas.  The Eagles then took the lead in the top of the seventh inning on a Grace LeGrave RBI infield single and added on with an RBI triple from Neinas.  But Brillion tied the game in the bottom of the inning with two runs on only one hit and a pair of Eagles errors and then won it with three straight two out singles in the bottom of the 8th inning.  Carmen Yost drove in the game winning run for the Lions and finished with two hits.  Erin Tadych had 3 doubles and Kyle Neinas added 3 hits for Southern Door.

Brillion will play Tomahawk on Thursday at Chilton after the Hatchets beat Oconto, 4-3, on Tuesday.
