The Serra Catholic Softball team beat last year's Section 3A Champion Leechburg Blue Devils 2-­1, in dramatic fashion yesterday afternoon. A pitchers duel had ensued for the first 5 innings with Peyton Jaworski picking up the only Eagles' hit. Going into the bottom of the sixth inning Leechburg had a 1­0 lead when Simone Jahn and Gia Husnick both drew walks. With one out and runners on first and third, Sam Andrekanic smacked a double to left center. Jahn scored easily and Husnick hustled home all the way from first to put the Eagles up 2­-1. Leechburg was denied in the top of the 7th securing the Eagles second victory of the season. With solid defense behind her, Sam Andrekanic picked up her second win of the season, striking out nine, and only giving up two hits and one walk. The Eagles are back in Friday (4/1) afternoon at home against the Riverview Pirates. Game time is 4:00pm. GO EAGLES!!
