The game was fairly routine for four innings, then it got crazy. The teams scored 34 in the last three innings – 16 in the fifth and 13 in the sixth.

Roper went 4-for-7 with two RBIs for Pleasant Valley. Lily Henry went 6-for-7 with three RBIs, Madyson Cromer went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and Gracee Ward drove in five runs.

Ashley Phillips hit two homers among her three hits for Alexandria. Jill Cockrell and Rylee Gattis had three hits piece and Addie Jennings had four RBIs.

The Lady Cubs sent 14 batters to the plate to score 10 in the fifth and take a 13-2 lead, but PV scored six in the bottom of the inning. Alexandria extended its lead to 15-8 in the top of the sixth, but the Lady Raiders sent 14 to the plate to score 11 in the bottom of the inning to take a 19-15 lead.

Alexandria tied it with four in the seventh and got the first two outs in the bottom of the inninig before the Lady Raiders put together their winning rally.
