La Crosse, WIS. (WXOW) -------- Arcadia is just one win away from capping an undefeated season, after a 1-0 win in the Division 3 State Semifinals over Grantsburg.
Hillary Filla scored the game winning run in the bottom of the 7th, after Alli Petz layed down a perfect suicide squeeze.
"I was really nervous, because the coach gave me the sign about what we were going to do, I had never been in that situation before, as soon as Alli made contact with that ball, I had to run and it felt so real touching the plate and we won it was amazing," said Filla
Filla was inserted to the game as pinch runner after Michaela Brueggen reached first on an error to start the inning.
Filla, then immediately stole 2nd base and advanced to 3rd base after another Grantsburg error. She eventually scored the game-winning run after Petz's successful bunt down the first base line.
In the circle, Taylor Haines dominated again for Arcadia. The senior hurled a complete game 3-hitter, while striking out 13 batters.
Arcadia will go for the school's first State Softball Championship on Saturday afternoon.
