Meanwhile the offense for Canton has been explosive this season. Canton broke open Saturday’s quarterfinal against Norborne with 12 runs over the final two innings to roll by a final score of 14-1. Bastian says the quarterfinal performance was an example of his team’s hitting mentality.
Canton brings a 22-1 record with them to Springfield. Countering the Canton Lady Tigers are the Stoutland Lady Tigers. Stoutland is making their first ever appearance in the MSHSAA Softball Final Four. They won just their third district title in program history by defeating Vienna 10-3. They then followed that up with convincing 7-1 victories over Norwood and Weaubleau in the sectional and quarterfinal rounds respectively. Pitching and defense have been a strength throughout the season for Stoutland as they have posted eleven shutouts on their way to a 19-3-1 record.
