With her softball team down to its last strike Friday afternoon, all Metea Valley’s Emma Zenkel could think about was putting the ball in play.

But with the way West Chicago pitcher Amy Goldsmith was throwing on the chilly, windy afternoon, that was often easier said than done. With the Mustangs trailing 1-0 with two outs in the seventh, Zenkel took an 0-2 pitch and lined it just out of the reach of Wildcats second baseman Jackie Stancik.

When Megan Arcivar followed Sydney Bajusz around the bases and slid safely at the plate without a throw home, what looked like a possible 1-0 loss turned quickly into a 2-1 lead. Mustangs pitcher Elise Titiner allowed only a two-out single in the bottom of the seventh inning to come away with her third win of the season as Metea improved to 3-2 overall and 3-0 in the Upstate Eight Valley.
