Union/Cove advances to state championship
The Union/Cove softball advanced to the OSAA 1A state championship game today with a 6-4 road victory over North Douglas/Elkton in eight innings.
After giving up two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to force the game into an extra inning, the Lady Cats avoided disaster scoring two runs in the top of the eighth inning, then holding the Warriors scoreless to clinch the victory.
No. 1 seed Weston-McEwen/Griswold suffered a 2-1 upset loss to No. 4 Bonanza in the other semifinal. As a result, the No. 3 Lady Cats will be the home team in the state championship game, which is currently set for a 1 p.m. first pitch in Corvallis.
