Bridgeport Secures Section Crown with 10-7 Win over Lincoln

Bridgeport's senior class has gotten accustomed to winning the section crown. They have done it every year since they've been in high school and tonight the class made it 4/4 as the Indians beat the Lincoln Cougars, 10-7, to claim the Region II, Section 1 title.

Kate Stanley gave the Tribe the lead in the first inning with a 2-run home run and Bridgeport held a 5-0 lead after three. The Cougars answered with a 4-run bottom of the inning to pull within one run. Bridgeport scored 2 runs in the 4th and 3 in the 5th to put the game out of reach.

Bridgeport beat Lincoln, 6-0 earlier in the week, to advance in the winner's bracket of the section.

The Indians will face defending champion Herbert Hoover in the best-of-3 regional series next week.
