In a 3-2 game going into the top of the seventh inning Tuesday night, the top of the order was due up for both Hastings and York. The first batters for both teams — Ellie McCoy of Hastings and Lauren Riley of York — led off their half of the seventh with a triple.

In a game where every pitch, swing and defensive play mattered, it was the York Dukes that had just enough fire power to win. York defeated Hastings 1-0 in a pitchers duel that lived up to its potential as Nebraska recruit Karlee Seevers and Hastings ace Olivia Douglas traded scoreless frames with precision.
