The Bulldog offense had a slow start to the day offensively. The runs started coming in the bottom of the 5th inning. Kallie Case, Velia Vidales, Sierra Saunders, and Keaghan Arnold all had RBI base hits.
In the bottom on the 7th inning with 2 outs, Velia Vidales hit a triple to left field to tie the game up and force extra innings. In the bottom of the 9th inning, Julianne Malis hit a pop fly to shallow left field that would fall. Malis was able to leg out an extra base hit to put her self into scoring position. Keaghan Arnold hit a fly ball to deep right field that would move Malis over to 3rd. Sierra Saunders stepped in and hit a ball right over 3rd base to score Malis, and walk off Ironwood for the victory. Malis pitched the complete 9 innings, while only giving up 6 hits, striking out 16 and walking 4.

The bulldogs will look to continue their successes when face Verrado after spring break.
