High School Softball - Postseason

>Class 3A

@ Galesburg Regional:

Galesburg, the #1 seed in its own regional, saw its season come to an end Tuesday afternoon against #4 seed Peoria Richwoods in a 13-inning marathon.

The game was tied a 2-2 after Galesburg scored a run in the bottom of the seventh inning. The teams played five scoreless innings after that when Richwoods broke through with two runs in the top of the 13th inning to win 4-2 and advance to Saturday's regional championship game against the winner of Wednesday's semifinal match-up between #2 seed Limestone and #3 seed Dunlap.

Galesburg had nine hits, including two apiece by Jessica Davison - who took the loss in the circle - and Jordan Marshall. Galesburg also committed six errors, which hurt their cause. The Knights had six hits in the game. The Silver Streaks end the season with an 11-21 record, the most wins since the 2004 GHS team won 15 games.
