Floyd’s Knob (N) vs Boardman (OH)

  • time: 11 a.m. ET
  • where: Central District Headquarters (Whitestown, Indiana)
  • Stream: ESPN +

After a heavy loss to Colombia (MO) on Thursday, Boardman was tasked with playing the early game on Friday for a chance at the regional championship. Prior to their loss, Emma Davis was a firefighter in the Ohio State Circuit. With their championship on the line, expect the ace to play again in this tournament, although a decision will have to be made if they emerge victorious.

The Indiana side suffered a loss in their first game of the tournament, but managed to rack up three straight wins as of Friday, all coming by just one round difference. A lot of that has to do with hitting on time and solid pitching thanks to their star, Aubrey Duckworth. In her three regional games, she was 2-1 with only four earned runs allowed in 17.2 innings, and 16 strikes.

La Verne (Southern California) – Cave Creek (Arizona)

  • time: 9 p.m. Eastern time
  • where: Houghton Stadium (San Bernardino, California)
  • Stream: ESPN +

With just two wins on their record, La Verne just needs more to start planning a trip to North Carolina. In fact, the Southern California team has yet to play a full six-run game in these communities. After beating Cave Creek 10-0 last Sunday, La Verne repeated that feat again on Wednesday against Ely (NV) to move into the championship game. Laney Sweeney hasn’t made it to base yet, as she went 6-6 with five RBIs and scored three runs. Promotion was strong for Southern California as well, where they only allowed seven strokes, and didn’t walk the eight innings of the action.

Arizona will get their second crack in La Verne, having mercy on them in Southern California in their second game of the championship. This was Cave Creek’s only shortcoming in their record, winning four games 49-4. Kylie Condall was one of the best hitters to date, scoring 9-13 with six RBIs and seven runs.

Issaquah (Washington) vs Billings (MT)

  • time: 3 p.m. Eastern time
  • where: Houghton Stadium (San Bernardino, California)
  • Stream: ESPN +

Issaquah has dominated through the regional events so far, winning all three of their games with a combined 33-3 score. The offense helped them jump in front of Hermston (OR) on Wednesday, which helped them win 5-0. While London White was strong in painting, shooter Shaelyn Erickson was also exceptional. She has yet to give up a run in 10 innings, hitting 16 while not giving up only two.

After losing their first game of the championship, Montana stormed into the regional, all the way to the championship game. They were able to recover from a 6-4 delay at the bottom of the fifth to defeat Hermston (or) to reach the championship match. In his three wings, Billings outpaced opponents by a crazy score of 47 to 17. Of all the impressive offensive performances during the tournament, Billings’ Soraya Shirley stood out, going 6-11 with two home runs, scoring eight RBIs and seven runs.

These two teams played last Sunday in Billings’ first game of the tournament, with Isakoh putting on a superb attacking effort, winning 13-3.
