Witches Regional Champs Again
Make it back-to-back Class B North Regional titles for Brewer softball. A 12-4 win over the Hermon Hawks Tuesday night sends the Witches back to the state championship game on Saturday.
Senior Libby Hewes pitched a complete game win in the circle and also smacked a three-run home run to lead the Witches. She struck out five batters and survived a bunch of errors by stranding 13 runners.
The home run gave Brewer an early lead but the Hawks battled back to make it 5-4 in the fifth inning.
The Witches would tack on five more runs in their half of the fifth inning. The key hit was a two-run single by Jordan Goodrich. All five runs were unearned because of Hawks errors.
Brewer will take on South Region champion York in the state title game on Saturday. It will be at St. Josepsh's College.
For the Hernon Hawks, they finish the season at 16-4.
