Onalaska, WISCONSIN (WXOW) The Onalaska Luther softball team needed some late inning magic to pull away from Aquinas and secure a 5-2 win in a Division 3 Regional playoff game Tuesday.
Nicole Beckendorf broke a 2-2 tie with a solo home run in the 5th inning to give the Knights the lead for good.
They added two more in the 6th, one of those coming on an Emily Appold single.
Appold and Eliza Dobbe had 3 hits each for Luther.
Mariah Schultz was the winning pitcher.
Luther entered the playoffs as the top-ranked team in Wisconsin in the last division 3 poll from the Wisconsin Fastpitch Coaches Association.
Luther will host Arcadia in a regional championship game Thursday.
