NEW BOSTON — The New Boston Lady Tigers did damage in their own right in Monday’s Division IV sectional semifinal versus Trimble — but were unable to overcome a great start by their guests in a 17-7 defeat.

The No. 17-seed Trimble scored the game’s first 14 runs — including an 11-run top of the third that helped decide their win over the No. 16-seed Lady Tigers at Millbrook Park.

Four different Trimble players had at-least two RBIs — as the Lady Tomcats collected 15 hits as a team and capitalized on six NB errors.

New Boston responded in the home half of the third with a five-run inning and again with two runs in the fourth.

Senior Kenzie Whitley had a team-high two hits for the Lady Tigers and scored twice, while fellow senior Raegan Helphinstine had a pair of RBI.

Sophomore Jadelyn Lawson drove in a team-high three RBI for New Boston, while junior Bre Cokel had two RBI.

Trimble, as the No. 17-seed, advances to the D-IV sectional final where they will face top-seeded Notre Dame on Wednesday, May 11 at 5:00 p.m. in Portsmouth.
