This afternoon North Greene and Triopia softball teams began post-season play as they squared off in the Regional Semifinals. These two teams met a week ago with Triopia coming out on top and leaving North Greene hungry for a win. And hungry North Greene was, as they came out of the gate with a very high level of intensity that could be noticed in every play of the ballgame. North Greene leadoff hitter, Kallie Phares, was hit by the second pitch of the ballgame and would later score the first run of the game off of a hit by Haylee Kessinger. Triopia had a chance to tie the ballgame up in the fifth inning after a leadoff double by Adrienne McLain but the closest the runner came to scoring was third base and the game remained at 1-0 through five innings. North Greene took control of this ballgame in the top of the seventh when Jenny Ward stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and hit the first pitch she saw over the centerfield fence for the grand slam and gave us our final score of 5-0. Jenny Ward was the standout player of the day for the Spartans as she only allowed two hits on the mound and went 2-4 out the plate with 4 RBI’s. North Greene will play for the regional championship on Saturday morning against Griggsvlle-Perry.
