MIFFLINTOWN- In the past couple years Juniata softball fans thought they have seen their Lady Indians pull out victories in every way conceivable.

They were wrong!

Juniata had another epic win stored away to give the huge home crowd another thing to add to its legacy.

Down twice in their contest against Central Cambria, the veteran Indians team found themselves facing elimination in the 11th inning, trailing 4-1.

Impossible to come back right?

Not for this group as they gutted out four runs to take the walk off nail biting 5-4 victory advancing them to the D6 Championship contest.

It would be a legendary performance by Juniata phenom hurler Liz Gaisior as she struck out 28 batters in the comeback from behind victory. She finished scattering only three hits.

Not to be overshadowed, the Lady Indians offense stole the show late en route to the victory. Lexi Frontz led the charge with a three hit afternoon.

With the game tied 1-1 in the 11th, the Red Devils thought they put the game away posting three runs, taking the lead.

Starting with Regan Lowrey on second due to the new extra inning rule, Frontz blasts her home with an RBI double.

Frontz moved up to third on a passed ball. She later scored on a Shalelyn Armstrong found out, cutting the deficit to a lone run, 4-3.

Victoria Moore and Sophia Smith both walked adding to the drama.

Alexa Kuhn showed she was up for the moment, roping a double to score both Moore and Smith to keep the Indians’ season alive and well.
