Mac Armstrong went the distance for the Clinton Lady Maroons and shut out Springfield High School 4-0 in a Regional semifinal matchup at the Rochester High School in the Class 3A softball postseason. 

 

Armstrong set down the first 11 batters she faced before a two-out single gave the Lady Senators their first hit of the day. 

 

Springfield would muster just five more base runners the rest of the game and Armstrong did not allow a runner to reach third base. She struck out three, walked one and allowed three total hits.

 

The Lady Maroons were led offensively by Elly Maier who logged the game's only extra-base hit with an RBI double in the fifth inning. Winds were consistently blowing to right field and center field throughout the game but no one could muscle anything more than bloop base hits or ground balls through the infield. Polen finished 2-for-2 with a walk, run scored and RBI.

 

Camdyn Alsup finished 2-for-3 with a run scored. Savannah Clifton finished 2-for-4 with a run driven in. Amanda Tool also drove in a run for the Lady Maroons.

 

Clinton will take on Rochester at Rochester High School Friday afternoon for a Regional title. The Rockets shut out Clinton in a Regional semifinal game last year at Mahomet-Seymour and knocked the Lady Maroons out of the postseason in 2017 with an 11-3 in a Regional title game at Clinton High School. The Lady Maroons lost in a Regional final in 2016 to Effingham, 1-0. 

 

Friday's matchup is the third Regional championship game appearance in four seasons for Clinton. 

 

Game time is 4:30 pm from Rochester. Hear the action on The Big 1520 AM/92.3 FM/106.5 FM WHOW and online at dewittdailynews.com.
