Allison Mitchell led the way with three hits and two defensive gems to push the Falcons head first into the third round. Both Randleman and Forbush displayed superb plays, but in the end it was the Falcons that won the defensive battle with its second shutout in as many games. Allison Mitchell snagged a line drive, and doubled off the runner on first base to end the game in the top of the seventh inning.

The Falcons scratched across four runs on the night, but stranded nine runners on base in six innings of play. The Tiger outfield took three hits away from the Falcons to keep the score close throughout.

Mitchell got things started in the bottom of the 1st inning. She lined the second pitch up the middle for a lead-off single. After advancing to third, Mitchell was driven home by the SAC fly off the bat of Logan Wood. The Falcons added another run in the 2nd as Marissa Lineberry doubled off the fence in center, and Kelsey Swaim brought home Jenna Moran (courtesy runner) with a single to left to make the score 2-0.

That score stood until the bottom of the 5th inning when Logan Wood and Sydney Miller got back-to-back hits. Wood doubled in the gap and Miller followed with a single. With runners on 2nd and 3rd, Lineberry grounded a ball to the shortstop to score Wood from 3rd base. Both courtesy runners for Miller and Lineberry were stranded to keep the score 3-0 in favor of the Falcons.

Mitchell was at it again in the bottom of the 6th inning. She lined another single to right and advanced to 3rd base by way of a ground out. Taylor Wooten got her home with a ground out to short to put the final tally up for the Falcons.

The Tigers tried to make things interesting with a lead-off single in the top of the seventh, but that threat was ended quickly by way of a double play.

Sydney Miller scattered three hits over seven innings to get the win for the Falcons. Miller ended with seven strikeouts on another solid performance in the circle.

The Falcons will host the Wildcats of Eastern Randolph on Tuesday at 7pm. Eastern Randolph comes in with a record of 9-10, and is the third seed out of the PAC-6 conference.


Two of Forbush High School's legends were in attendance for the 2nd round playoff game on Friday night. Jessica Hinkle Rebollar played second base for the Falcons in the late 2000s. She was an All-Conference and All-District performer during her time at Forbush High School.

Marco Rebollar was a member of the men's soccer team during the same time frame. He played center back for the Falcons, earning All-Conference and All-Region honors.

Always nice to see good folks return to support the current Falcons!

Forbush definitely has a fan base at home games. Spectators take a lot of pride in their school and their softball team, and love to support. Heather Swaim, family and friends help lead the fanatic cheers.

It's nice to be home!
