LaBrae’s softball team nearly rallied with two outs in the seventh inning but fell just short to Columbia, 3-2, in a Division III Regional Final at Massillon Washington High School on Saturday afternoon.
The Vikings cut the deficit to 3-2 when Danielle Miracle ripped a single to right field. The ball rolled under the glove of the right fielder. That allowed a run to score. Columbia was able to record a strikeout to end the rally and the game.
LaBrae fell behind in the bottom of the 3rd inning after a pair of errors allowed the Raiders to plate the game’s first run.
