Riverfield Senior All-Stars advance to state title game

ZIONSVILLE — The Riverfield All-Stars defeated Osolo 11-5 to advance to the championship game of the Senior Girls Softball State Tournament on Saturday night at Lion's Club Park in Zionsville.

Riverfield will play in the championship game on Sunday at 6 p.m. and must lose twice in the double-elimination tournament.

Against Osolo, which defeated Riverfield in the championship game of the 2013 tournament, the All-Stars fell behind 4-0 in the first inning after a walk, single, two more walks and three errors, including two on one play after a walk.

Riverfield got back into the game and took the lead with five runs in the top of the third inning. Aysha Richardson singled with one out, and Sydney Hatter doubled to score Richardson with the first run. Hailee Beeson walked, Shelley Smith singled and Dyamond Maxwell singled to score two more runs. Tamera Fuller plated the go-ahead run with a two-out single to score Maxwell.

Riverfield added two more runs in the fourth inning as Kiley Saylor singled, Hatter reached on an error and Beeson drove in both runners with a single. They added three more insurance runs in the fifth inning — on RBI hits by Hatter and Smith. Hatter also had an RBI single in the seventh inning to account for the final run.

Beeson earned the victory, allowing four hits and two earned runs in seven innings while striking out 14 with eight walks.

In the first game of the day, Riverfield defeated the Diamond Devils 20-4 in five innings. Richardson was the winning pitcher, allowing eight hits and three earned runs in five innings while striking out four without a walk.

Beeson led the offense with three hits and three runs scored, and Hatter added two hits and two runs scored. Dyamond Maxwell also had two hits and a run, and Makaylla Sutton chipped in with two hits.

In the second game, Beeson was the winning pitcher, allowing just one hit and one earned run in seven innings while striking out nine with five walks.

Riverfield scored five runs in the first inning and three in the third to blow open the game. Smith led the offense with three hits, and Beeson had two more hits in the contest.
