No. 8 Fairfield,No. 13 Osky to meet in 4A regional final

FAIRFIELD — Eighth-ranked Fairfield opened their regional softball tournament with five first inning runs, coming by way of two home runs. That 5-0 lead over Southeast Conference rival Mount Pleasant would hold through the first three innings before lightning and thunderstorms forced the Class 4A, Region 6 semifinal to be postponed until Monday.

When the action resumed, it was more of the same for the Trojans. Fairfield added two more fifth-inning runs and two more in the sixth to complete a 9-1 win over the Panthers, booking a trip to the Class 4A, Region 6 Finals in Oskaloosa.

The 13th-ranked Indians will be the opponent for No. 8 Fairfield on Osky’s home diamond tonight. Three early runs helped Oskaloosa pull ahead early to a 5-0 lead in the fourth on the way to a 5-2 victory over Little Hawkeye Conference rival Pella to set up a postseason rematch with Fairfield.

Allly Deao retired the Panthers in order in the first on Saturday. She ended the inning with her only two strikeouts of the early going.

The Trojans scored their five runs in the first with two outs. Brenna Bowman and Marissa Repp worked back-to-back walks and McKenzie McClure reached on an error to load the bases.

Karly Williams then launched the first of the two long balls for a grand slam to left. The next hitter, Trojan designated player Sarah Trent, homered to left for the 5-0.

Mount Pleasant would strand a baserunner in each of the next two innings, but were still looking for their first hit when the rains came Saturday.

Sydney Burnett’s one-out double in the second was the only offense for Fairfield after the first. On Monday, Marissa Repp had two big hits with a lead-off double that started a two-run scoring rally as Repp scored on a McClure RBI single. Trent then added her second run-scoring extra-base hit on an RBI double that made it 7-0 Fairfield after five.
