Back to take care of unfinished buisness, Lady Indians are heading back to PIAA title game

MILLERSVILLE- Back to take care of some unfinished business, the Juniata softball team is returning to get a second shot of a PIAA title.

Last season, the Indians were just one game shy of their quest for gold. This season, Juniata was a team bound and determined to reach the pinnacle of their division.

Monday, the Lady Indians weren’t messing around, their offense scored five runs while its defense and pitching phenom Liz Gaisior took care of the rest!

Hitting the 20-strike out mark, the hurler gave up just two hits in the contest, putting her team back into the title tilt topping Conwell-Egan Catholic 6-0.

Lexi Frontz led things from the plate going 3-for-3 and scoring a run.

Shalelyn Armstrong and Victoria Moore both notched an RBI in the win.

Juniata opened their scoring in the bottom of the first where they battled for a 3-run inning.

Regan Lowrey led off with a single into centerfield. Lowrey later steals third and then home to get on the scoreboard.

Frontz hits a high flying single, putting another runner on board.

Armstrong reaches on a bunt single which scored Frontz on an error by Conwell-Egan Catholic.

Armstrong would make it a 3-0 contest as she scored on a passed ball.

That would be all the runs that Gaisior and the Juniata defense behind her would need.

But the bats added some more insurance runs in the fourth, giving the home team all the run support they needed as they shut things down from there en route to the victory.
