DELTA -- The Oran Lady Eagles advanced to the Class 1, District 1 championship game on Friday, doing so in comeback fashion against the Naylor Lady Eagles 11-5 in the district semifinal.

After falling behind by two runs early in the first inning, Oran gained one run back in the bottom of the second but then fell behind even further when Naylor scored two more runs in the third inning.

The Lady Eagles bounced right back though, with three runs in the bottom half of the third to tie the game at four runs a piece.

But, yet again, Naylor grabbed one more run in the next half inning to give them a one run lead. This time though, Oran poured out seven runs in the bottom half of the fourth inning to give them a commanding 11-5 lead that eventually stuck until the end of the game.

"I feel that the team really stepped up their game today," Oran head coach Sara Heisserer said. "We had to come from behind and I was really proud of the way they pulled it off. In past games, we gave up once we lost a lead. But today they really showed what they are made of. We had some girls get really big hits that haven't had a hit in several games."

Halle Woodfin led Oran with three hits which were all doubles and drove in four RBIs. Kirstie Mangels added two hits and one RBI.

Clair Seyer picked up the win with seven innings pitched while giving up two earned runs on seven hits and three walks. She also struck out six.
