Lady Bison Outlast Chestnut Ridge 4-3 To Advance to PIAA Class AAA Second Round

The way pitcher Emma Hipps cruised through the first six innings against the hard-hitting Chestnut Ridge lineup, Clearfield appeared headed for a rather convincing victory in their PIAA Class AAA softball opener at Heindl Field Monday afternoon.

Then, it turned into a real nail-biter for the Lady Bison and their fans, as the Lady Lions staged a seventh-inning comeback that had the tying run in scoring position with only one out.

Hipps was equal to the challenge, though, sealing the 4-3 victory – only the second at the state tournament level by a Clearfield team – on a pop-up and her 10th strikeout against the dangerous Makayla Weyant, who had homered in Chestnut Ridge’s last two games.

Clearfield (13-9) will meet District 7 (WPIAL) champion Avonworth (21-2) in the quarterfinals Thursday at 2:30 PM @ St. Francis College, Loretta, PA .
