ELMWOOD - The Elmwood/Plum City prep softball co-op edged rival Spring Valley Tuesday afternoon 6-5 in the Dunn-St. Croix Conference contest.


Shelby Hall scored the winning run in EPC's last at bat. Hall was on second when a pair of errors help bring her around to home plate.

The error flu sickened EPC too. The Wolves might have won less dramatically had it not been for a pair of errors that helped bring home three runs in the top of the sixth inning and tied the game at 5-5 after EPC went in front 5-2 in the fifth.

Taylor Chilson led EPC in hitting, going 2-for-4 with two RBI-doubles. Nevada Schlegel had two hits for Spring Valley and Faith Anderson drove in two runs for the Cardinals.

EPC improves to 2-0 overall and in the league and Spring Valley drops to 0-2 overall and in the D-SC.
