Lourdes 3, Markesan 2: The Knights scored the game-winning run in the top of the seventh inning to sneak past Markesan on the road.
In the top of the seventh, Anna Kohls led off by reaching first thanks to an error. Jordyn Giese bunted her over and then Emily Kinas sac-bunted her over to third before Kohls scored the go-ahead run thanks to another error by Markesan.
Markesan wouldn’t go away, however. In the bottom of the seventh, Markesan had the bases loaded with no outs but then Lauren Schiek struck out the top of the order to end the game. Schiek finished with 12 strikeouts against two walks.
Ciarra Zemke and Schiek had Lourdes’ only hits. Zemke had a triple.
