The Seneca softball team won the WIAA Division 5 Sectional Championship held in Bangor on Wednesday, June 23 with 3-2 victory over Independence-Gilmanton.

Seneca got off to a slow start and spotted Independence-Gilmanton two runs in the second inning–fueled by some errors and misplayed balls. The first run came on a passed ball and the second run scored when the Seneca third baseman Aubrey Wallin tried to throw a runner out at home instead of taking the third out by taking the runner going to first.

If it could go wrong it did go wrong for the Seneca softball team in the second inning of the WIAA Division 5 State Tournament Semifinal Game that was held in Green Bay on Monday.

Seneca went three up and three down in the top of the first inning, but all three hitters made contact with the ball.

Their opponent, the number one seeded Oakfield, took advantage of a missed played bunt. Seneca pitcher Philomena Hall fielded the bunt and tried to throw out the runner at first, instead of tagging her.

Hall’s throw went past first baseman and scored the runner from second.

Then, Oakfield’s left fielder tripled to left field to score the runner.
