Stonewall got within 2-1 in the bottom of the first with a two-out uprising. Alexis Lamber belted a double to the wall in center field and later came home on Lauryn Humphers’ RBI single.
Frontier added a run in the top of the second when Teri Buntt started the frame with a base hit and — after a pair of walks loaded the bases — scored while Tana Davis was beginning the first of her three double plays she was part of in the contest.
The Stonewall defense tightened and didn’t allow another run. Frontier left the bases load in the top of the third, and then — after Campise and company retired seven straight hitters — Kristan Molina lead off the sixth with a base hit only to be retired on another Tana Davis-led twin killing.
Frontier tried to rally in the seventh. Katie Bottger and Young both walked and Alivai Molina reached on a one-out error to load the bases for Michaelanne Nelson. But Campise got Nelson to pop up to Tana Davis at third base for the second out and she quickly doubled off Bottger who had strayed too far off the bag.
Stonewall got within 3-2 with a run in the bottom of the fifth. Humphers lined a one-out single to right center, went to third on a Tana Davis double. Jessika York walked to load the bases before Sarah Monday’s free pass forced in the run.
In the Lady Longhorns’ big fifth inning, Campise and Lambert reached on back-to-back Frontier errors before Humphers drew a two-out walk. Tana Davis then drove the ball off the center field wall, clearing the bases and putting Stonewall ahead to stay.
Davis finished 2-for-3 while Humphers went 2-for-2 with two runs scored to account for four of Stonewall’s seven hits in the contest. Lamber scored twice to go with her first-inning two-bagger.
Buntt lead Frontier with a 3-for-3 showing at the plate but had half of her team’s total hits (six).
