Colin Schowe with the call on KWIX 92.5 FM, 1230 AM, and centralmoinfo.com. Stefankiewicz would finish the day 4-4 at the plate with two singles, a double, and a solo home run to give her 3 RBIs for the game. Sailsbury head coach Nate King said Stefankiewicz can do it all at the plate.
Salisbury starting pitcher Bryn Wooldridge was solid in the circle again as she pitched the full seven innings and struck out ten St. Elizabeth batters. Wooldridge did have to overcome five walks and three hits in the contest. King said Wooldridge did a great job pitching in such a big game.
Wooldridge’s effort helped insure Salisbury’s postseason shutout streak stayed intact. Through four postseason games Salisbury has now outscored its opponents 46-0. The Lady Panthers will head to Springfield Friday for a Class 1 Semifinal against Maysville. King said his team is geared up for a rematch of last year’s Class 1 Championship game.
Last year the Lady Wolverines defeated Salisbury 3-2 on an eighth inning walkoff home run to capture the Class 1 Championship.
