GAME 2:

Peru vs. Beardstown

These two teams entered today’s game by both picking up wins yesterday and today’s winner would get a spot in Tuesday night’s championship game.

Peru’s only run of the ball game was scored by lead off hitter Kamryn Nelson in the bottom of the 1st inning.

Kamryn Nelson takes the loss for Peru. Beardstown’s Olivia Dour pitched a complete game no hitter while picking up the win.
