GAME 1:

Chicago (Clear Ridge) vs. Peru

To open up the 2011 9/10 Softball State Tournament, Peru and Clear Ridge squared off in a great ball game down at Brown County Little League in Mt. Sterling, IL.  These two teams provided a great opening game for this tournament, as they provided plenty of excitement for all.  Tied at 0 through 2 innings of play, Clear Ridge plated 2 runs in the top of the 3rd to take a 2-0 lead.  Peru then answered back with a 7 run bottom of the 3rd inning.  Clear Ridge did threaten to make a comeback in the Top of the 6th but could not get it done and fell by a score of 9-6.

For Peru, Jaden Corsolini (pronounced–CORSO-LINI) gets the win on the mound while striking out 6 batters and going 2-3 at the plate with 2 runs scored.
For Clear Ridge, Liz Kaminski(pronounced KA-MIN-SKI) takes the loss and went 2-3 at the plate and scored 1 run.

GAME 2:

River Forest vs. Beardstown

Game 2 featured a David vs. Goliath type match-up, to the eye, as most of the River Forest team was smaller than the smallest player on the Beardstown squad.  But that did not stop River Forest as they put runners in scorers position every inning.  But the team from Beardstown continued their offensive ways and won the game by a score of 11-4.

For Beardstown, Olivia Dour (pronouced–DOOR) gets the win on the mound for Beardstown, while Megan Stock went 2-4 at the plate with 2 hard line shots to the right field fence.
For River Forest, Fionna Girardo takes the loss, while Maeve (pronounced MAYVE, rhymes with DAVE) went 2-2 at the plate with 2 runs scored and both hits were triples!

River Forest will play Clear Ridge tomorrow at 2 pm in the elimination game, while Peru will play Beardstown at 4pm in the state semi-finals.
