St. Hubert gave up four runs in the first inning of last night's PIAA Class AAAA softball tournament and never recovered, dropping a 6-2 quarterfinal to Waynesboro in Fleetwood, Pa.
The Bambies (20-4), Catholic League and District 12 champions this spring, got a run-scoring single from Mary Kate Foley and an RBI double by Gina Sciarrone among its four hits against the District 3 runner-up.
In a key late-inning sequence with the bases loaded and St. Hubert trailing, 4-1, with two outs, a line drive appeared to be headed to the outfield for a hit. But the ball deflected off the second baseman's glove and turn into the third out of the inning.
Waynesboro will face Parkland in the state semifinals on Monday. Waynesboro beat District 1 winner Spring-Ford, 2-0, in the other quarterfinal at Fleetwood. *
