Mt. Hebron 2, Reservoir 1

Mt. Hebron got on the board first in the fourth inning courtesy of a trio of two-out singles. Bridgette Vogan and Maddie Bennett got things started and then Erin Vogan delivered the RBI.
Reservoir followed with its lone run in the fifth. Monica Lamm reached on a throwing error and then Caroline Winand followed with a double to score her.
Rachel Cadigan led off the bottom of the seventh with a single and that set up the walk-off victory on Buehlman’s hit. Cadigan also shined in the field with four outstanding plays at second base.
