On Monday evening at Ontario it was teacher vs student, as the Ontario softball team coached by Crestliner Jackie Flinders in her first season took on the team she played for and coached with under 19 year veteran Crestline coach Ron Shumate.  The game was big, as both teams are in contention for division crowns in the NCC.  

When things were all said and done, it was Ontario that picked up a big win stopping Crestline 10-4.  The win kept the surprising Warriors just a game back of Bucyrus in the NCC Black division with a conference mark of 8-1 and 15-7 overall.  Ontario ran out to a 5-0 lead after three innings, led 6-1 after four, then pretty much put the game away in the bottom of the fifth scoring four runs.  As a team, Ontario banged out 11 hits off Crestline pitcher Natalie Sayre who struck out eight but walked four. 

Ontario pitcher Payton Kuenzli also struck out eight and walked just one, limiting the Bulldogs to single runs in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh innings while scattering nine hits.  Kuenzli, Meredith Remy, Lindsay Musille and Christy Reynolds all had mulitple hits.  Crestline's Maura Huber, Kelsey Ronk, Ellen Dailey and Mackenzie Ronk all had hits for the Bulldogs.  The loss puts Crestline at 8-2 in the NCC's Silver Division and 11-7 in all games.

Both teams are still in divisional races in the NCC.  Ontario has NCC games with Bucyrus, Lucas and Galion.  Crestline has remaining league games with Galion and Col.Crawford.  Both have tournament games next Monday.  In Division IV, Crestline will play the winner of the Lucas vs Mansfield Christian contest at Col.Crawford, while the Warriors in Division III, will play at Shelby against the winner of the Crestview vs Upper Sandusky contest.   

On Tuesday night the Warriors divisional championship hopes took a major hit as the team was run ruled by conference leading Bucyrus 12-2.  After taking a 2-1 lead in the top of the second, the Redmen scored 11 unanswered runs getting three in the fourth, six in the fifth and two in the sixth to drop the Warriors to 15-8 overall and 8-2 in the NCC Black Division.  Bucyrus pitcher Taylor Rossman struck out nine while giving up five hits, while the Redmen shelled Ontario's Payton Kuenzli with 16 hits.  The win puts Bucyrus at 13-3, 10-0 in conference.
