May 24, 2014

WAPAKONETA — The Minster softball team never said die.

The Wildcats scored a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to keep their tournament alive and then clinched the Division IV district title in bizarre fashion in the bottom of the ninth for a 6-5 victory over the Crestview Knights at Wapakoneta on Friday.

While trying to intentionally walk Michaela Goettemoeller in the ninth, Crestview was called for an illegal pitch, which allowed the winning run to score. The issue involved the catcher’s positioning on the intentional walk.
