The Knoxville Softball Squad’s perseverance paid off as the Panthers scored twice in the sixth to take a one run lead and then set Centerville down in order in the seventh to preserve a 5-4 win last night over the Redettes. Knoxville was aided by seven free passes from Centerville pitching, three of those were hit batsmen. Cheyenne Jones went 2/3 at the plate, while Kassie Griggs and Carrie Chambers each had an R-B-I. Emily Wallace got the win going the distance giving up four runs, scattering eight hits, striking out two and walking none and retiring the final seven batters she faced. Knoxville is now 5-10 on the season and will cross the river to play Pella High tonight.
