Defense wins championships it has been said.
And tonight Donegal’s defense, including 7 shutout innings from Makyla Yoder and Sierra Neiss, coupled with a lack of defensive plays and 5 errors by Lampeter Strasburg, made all the difference as the Indians beat the Pioneers 7-0 in the Class 5A, PIAA semifinals game at Millersville University tonight.
That means that Donegal will play Cedar Cliff on Friday at Penn State for the PIAA, 5A title.
Offense for the Indians was fueled by Rachel Robinson and Peighton Hornick who drove in a combined 4 runs with their hits including two doubles.
Pioneers 000 000 0 0 6 5
Indians 001 213 x 7 11 1
