Fairfield uses 30th win to advance past Osky

(Continued)

OSKALOOSA —

Oskaloosa scored their only run in the fourth. Zickefoose led off with her second hit and, after a Trojan error, scored on an RBI single by Aubrey Miller. Two other runners reached base, but the Indians left the bases loaded.

“Early in the year, we were picking up those runs,” said Oskaloosa coach Jay Harms. “We just have struggled with the timely hit the last half of our season.”

The score was still 4-1 after five, but the Trojans added a single run in the sixth. Another Oskaloosa error put the first Trojan on base and, after a Sydney Burnett double, Anderson’s third hit scored the run.

“After missing all of last year, I feel like I’m just now starting to hit like I should,” said Anderson. “I've been in these situations before and that helps.”

 Deao blanked the Indians in the sixth and seventh.

“Alli was hitting her spots with all of her pitches,” said Williams.

“It really helps our defense that she is throwing strikes,” added Bradfield.

Fairfield tacked on another unearned run in the seventh. Madison Roberts drove in the run with a sacrifice fly.

“We knew we’d have to have a solid defensive game,” said Harms. “We thought that if we got a lead early, we’d be okay but the five unearned runs really kept putting us in a hole.”

Oskaloosa ends the season at 23-11. The 30-11 Trojans will travel to Winterset Tuesday night to take on the seventh-ranked Huskies with a berth in the Class 4A State Softball Tournament on the line at 7 p.m.

Bradfield talked about what his team will need to do to keep moving on and qualify for state.

“We want to continue to use our speed on the bases and hopefully, we won't leave runners on base.”
