Lizette Del Angel led the way pitching and hitting for the Wildcats, she had a crucial two-run double in the 4th inning that broke the game wide open.

Head Coach Teresa Lentz knew that this would be a challenging series.

“Veterans Memorial has great hitting and a great pitching staff,” Lentz said. “They played their hearts out this entire series.”
