Sigourney only had two errors defensively, but one came in the fifth as Lisbon went up 7-3 with the unearned run.
The Lions went up 9-3 with two runs in the sixth. Another Savage error caused one of the runs to be unearned.
“It was hard because we were trying to fight back and we gave them some extra chances,” said Streigle.
Sigourney had a hit by Karah Appleget in the sixth but failed to score. Sydney Davis had her third hit with two outs in the seventh but again failed to score to close out the 9-3 Lisbon win. Sigourney had at least one base runner in all but one inning.
“We did a good job of giving ourselves a chance to score but we just didn’t get the timely hit,” said Streigle.
Lisbon (26-15) will face No. 5 Lynnville-Sully on Monday night in Williamsburg in the regional finals for a berth in the 1A State Softball Tournament.
