Windsor Trojan softball got past the first round of their home regional on Wednesday by beating Beecher City, 19-9.
Beecher City had just one win this season, but they were locked in a close game with Windsor until the bottom of the 3rd, when the Trojans broke it open with a 9-run burst.
BCCH drew first blood with a solo run in the top of the 1st, but Windsor answered with a 4-run rally. BCCH had their own answer with a 2-run 2nd and it was back to a 1-run ball game, 4-3. Windsor made it 5-3 in the bottom of the 2nd, then held serve in the 3rd.
After the 9-run Trojan 3rd, BCCH gave their last hurrah with a 5-run 4th, cutting the 11-run deficit to 14-8. The problem was Windsor wouldn't stop scoring. They scored five more to the Eahgles one, including a 3-run 5th to pull the plug on the BC season with a 10-run rule finish.
The stats weren't that different. Windsor only out-hit BCCH 10 to 8 and Sarah Kirchhofer only walked one mire batter than Abrienne Lee. But, Windsor put their's together, capitalized, and survived to round 2.
