Congratulations to the Lady Lions softball team for defeating Watchung Hills 1-0 in the NJSIAA State Sectional Championship in walk off fashion. Megan Hanily sacrifice bunted to push Brogan, the pinch runner, into scoring position with one out, but McCabe struck out the next batter to get within one out of extra innings before Julie Apsel’s game-winning single. Julie Apsel ended up with a perfect 3 hit day. Maggie Swan was the winning pitcher who gave up five hits and two walks with six strikeouts.
As a result of Apsel’s heroics, the Lions’ quest for another trip to the Group 4 final will face Mount Olive, which grabbed the North 1, Group 4 in 10 innings over Livingston, in a state semifinal matchup at 5 p.m. Thursday at Ivy Hill Park in Newark.
