FIRELANDS --  The Longhorns were able to come back from a deficit in the sixth inning to pull out a win against Firelands with a score of 5-4.
 
They were down 1-3 in the sixth inning, losing to Firelands. West rallied to 5-3 starting when sophomore Elizabeth Petkac was walked to first and stole second then third. Senior Lindsay Hosko then hit a single to bring in Petkac as an RBI. Later that inning, senior Emily Mystic was up with bases loaded. She smashed a double bringing two home. Lastly junior Ava Gripp stole home creating the lead for the Longhorns. They kept that lead for the rest of the game to pull out the victory.
 
Lutheran West made four errors in the first two innings, causing them to be down early. West buckled down on defense by keeping Firelands from scoring for the rest of the game. Junior Ali Silberhorn started pitching, earning no walks and three strikeouts. Mystic finished out the end of the game pitching, also having no walks and three strikeouts. The change in the level of defense from the Longhorns was the ultimate game changer.
 
The Lady Longhorns are 3-2 overall and will continue to work throughout the rest of their season to finish strong.
