Mohawk Walks Off On East Canton At Akron Softball Regionals
The Mohawk softball team is headed to the Division IV Akron Regional Championship with a thrilling walk-off win over East Canton on Thursday.
The game was scoreless headed into the third where Cassy Wolfe put the Hornets on top with a 2-run blast. Lexi Betz tacked on an RBI single with 2-outs in the fifth to extend EC’s edge to 3-0 but Tess Weinandy matched their score with an RBI double in the bottom half of the frame.
Mohawk then pulled even at 3-3 in the sixth on a clutch 2-out RBI single by McKenna Hurley but Betz answered with her second RBI in the seventh to grab the lead back at 4-3, finishing 4-4 from the plate on the day. The clutch hitting continued in the bottom of the seventh for the Lady Warriors as Autumn Buder tied the game with a sacrifice RBI to advance Sydnee Leeth. That set the table for a walk-off single to center from the bat of Madi Chester to punch Mohawk’s ticket to the title game.
The Lady Warriors (19-7) will face state #1 Hillsdale (24-2) Saturday at 3 pm with a trip to the state final four on the line at Akron Firestone Stadium.
