The co-conference champion Panthers are now 19-10 on the season.
Tonight is going to be huge night of softball for some area teams, but first, let’s look at some 4A matchups that got underway last night.
Mount Pleasant now knows their opponent for Saturday night’s huge playoff contest at Mapleleaf Athletic Complex: the Fairfield Trojans.
The Panthers — who earned a first-round bye — will look for some revenge after Fairfield took the conference title in a winner take all matchup earlier this month at Fairfield.
The Trojans knocked off Keokuk last night 7-1 in their opening round matchup.
Coty Engle had two hits in the win for Fairfield, while Destiny Gridley drove in three runs.
Allison Rebling was terrific in the circle, allowing just two hits over her seven innings, striking out fourteen.
Saturday night’s game will begin at 7:00 p.m. and you can hear it here on KILJ-FM and KILJ.com.
The top of Mount Pleasant’s bracket is all set: #4 North Scott versus Burlington.
The Grayhounds took down Fort Madison last night 11-1. Adessa Bradenburg picked up the win for Burlington.
Bryanna Mehaffy went 4-for-4 for the Grayhounds in the win, while Carley McGinity recorded three hits.
The Bloodhounds end their season with a record of 14-18.
Burlington’s win sets up a very intriguing matchup with the Lancers of North Scott.
These two teams have already played each other twice this year, back on June 25th. The Grayhounds earned a split against the #4 team in the state.
The winner of Mount Pleasant and Fairfield will take on the winner of North Scott and Burlington for the right to move on to the Class 4A state softball tournament in Fort Dodge.
Several other area schools will be in action tonight, all of which are just two games away from punching tickets to the state softball tournament.
Perhaps the most intriguing match-up tonight is West Burlington-Notre Dame and #9 Camanche.
The Falcons have been playing sublime softball of late and could be a real problem for Camanche.
WB-ND is 24-11 on the year, while Camanche is 31-9. That game will be in Camanche tonight.
Staying in 3A, #2 Louisa-Muscatine will take on a pesky Centerville side tonight. L-M was last year’s 2A state champion and they haven’t missed a beat making the jump to 3A.
In 2A, Wapello will take on West Branch at home, while Van Buren will stay in the Southeast Iowa Super Conference and host Pekin.
Winners of the games tonight will play in the region finals on Monday night at site to be determined.
