After dropping the lead in the opening game of a double heder against Otero Sunday, Seward was able to rally in the bottom of the seventh for a walk-off win , 4-3. Seward dropped the second game in an error-riddled performance, 9-4.

Seward fell behind Otero in the opener when the Lady Rattlers scored two runs in the third inning off of Brittney Sharkey.

Seward tied the game in the fifth before Otero added a run in the top of the seventh to regain a 3-2 lead.

With one out, Felisha Vogelaar doubled to left, and Marissa Chavez followed with a single up the middle.

Rachel Shockley hit a double to right center that allowed Vogelaar to score, and Chavez came around from first to cross the plate for the winning run.

In Game 2, Otero took advantage of five Lady Saint errors and 12 hits to knock off Seward 9-4 for the split.

Seward traveled to Butler today to face the No. 1 team in the nation in a double header.

The Lady Saints will move on to the regional on the campus of Wichita State University Friday and will play Garden City to open the four-team,  double elimination tournament. The winner will advance to the national tournament.
