HALIFAX – Most teams who lose in the playoffs don’t get a chance to end the season with a win.
This spring, Juniata softball is not most teams.
A day after being eliminated from the District 6 Class AA tournament, the Indians finished the regular season with a 10-6, Tri-Valley League victory over Halifax.
Juniata was trailing after four innings, but tied the game with four runs in the sixth, and finished off the Wildcats with four more in the final turn.
Mady Marrone homered and had a double in the game. Micheh Horning and Kristen Pray each had doubles and each drove in a pair of runs in the win.
The Indians wind up with a 9-10 record, finishing 7-7 in the TVL.
