Four-Straight: St. Margaret’s claws back to win LIS softball title

St. Margaret’s softball fell into a five-run hole, but the Scotties refused to go away quietly, reeling off seven unanswered runs to beat Collegiate 7-5 Friday to win the LIS championship.

 

That’s St. Margaret’s fourth straight LIS title.

 

Collegiate scored three runs in the first inning and tacked on two more in the third. That’s when St. Margaret’s went to work, cutting the lead to 5-3 over the next two innings before exploding for four runs in the fifth to take the lead and control.

 

Carrie Fox got the win with a complete game in the circle for the Scotties while Zoe Truxon exploded for three RBI while going 2-for-3 at the plate. Sara Pierce and Sydney Trent each had an RBI with Pierce posting a 3-for-4 day.

 

For Collegiate, Madison Flinchum went 2-for-3 at the plate while Claire Powell scored a pair of runs.
