After Lexington and Clear Fork split their regular season series, it was the Colts that won the rubber match between the two teams claiming the Division II softball sectional championship by a final score of 5-2.  After the first two innings were scoreless, Clear Fork got on the board first with a two out rally when Taylor Kline  doubled, then Erika Farst brought her home with an RBI double that put Clear Fork on top 1-0 after the top of the third.

The Colts would add two more runs to their lead in the top of the fifth with another two out rally, again Kline reached on a single, stole second and again was brought around to score by Farst who delivered a two out RBI double making it 2-0 Clear Fork.  With Farst on base the Colts Anna Myers came through with another two out RBI double making it 3-0 Clear Fork.

In the bottom of the fifth, Lady lex responded with a two out rally of their own when Liz Hallabrin reached on an error, then Brooke Graham singled to put runners on second and third.  Then Dana Pike smaked a two run RBI single that brought Lexington to within a run at 3-2.

The Colts would add two more runs in the top of the seventh, with the top of the order doing it again when Kline hit a double.  She was followed by Farst getting an infield hit and after Myers was intentionally walked, Montana Walker brought home one run with an infield hit, then Morgan Arnett reached on an error which brought home another run making it 5-2 Clear Fork after six and a half innings. 

Lex did get a base runner in the bottom of the seventh on a base hit by Pike, but Colt pitcher Ellen Jones got Lady Lex's Abbie Sgro to pop out to end the game giving Clear Fork the sectional title.  With the win Clear Fork (19-9) will play Clyde, who was a 3-0 winner over Oak Harbor, at Buckeye Central on Wednesday at 5pm.  With the loss, Lexington dips to 20-8 and will play Madison, Monday in OCC play.  A win by the Rams (21-4) would give them an outright OCC title, a win by Lady Lex and the OCC would be split between Madison, Lexington and Ashland.  Madison also joins Clear Fork in the upper bracket of the Division II district at Buckeye Central.  The Rams will face Sandusky Perkins on Tuesday at 5pm. 

Of note: Clear Fork's Taylor Kline stole another base in Friday's game against Lexington incressing her state record to 70 swipes in a season.
