SGA Softball Advances to 2A State Championship with Walk-Off Victory in Semis

AUSTIN - The Lady Lions' best season in school history keeps getting better. SGA knocked off Hawley 7-6 in the State Semifinals to advance to the Class 2A softball State Championship.

Maranda Gonzalez was the hero for the Lady Lions, coming through with a walk-off single to keep the season alive.

SGA jumped out on top 2-0 after two innings of play. Hawley rallied to take the lead 3-2 in the third inning, and then led 6-3 heading into SGA's final at bat.

The Lady Lions loaded the bases in the bottom of the seventh with no outs. Kimberly Ruiz singled to left, scoring two runs and bringing SGA within a run at 6-5. Then with two outs Danielle Gonzalez hit a hot shot to third, the ball was misplayed allowing another SGA run to score, tieng the game at 6-6. That's when Maranda Gonzalez delivered with two outs and the bases loaded, a walk-off single to right and the Lady Lions stay alive.

Next up: SGA will face Pilot Point in the 2A State Championship game at McComb's Field, Thursday at 6pm.
