The Wildcats swept the home doubleheader from St. Joseph Central Catholic, but it took 34 runs to do it.  In game 1, which went eight innings, there were only four half-innings in which at least one run wasn't scored by the teams, fortunately for the Wildcats one of the those was the top of the eighth when they held the Streaks without a run for only the third inning of the game.  The Wildcats scored the winning run in the bottom of the eighth on a one-out walk drawn by sophomore Kayla Bosh.  She advanced to second on a passed ball and scored on a single to center field by junior Alex Moreno.  It was Moreno's third hit of the game and her fifth RBI.  Four other Woodmore hitters collected at least two hits led by sophomore Katelynn Marshall with three while freshman Lizzy Cook and Macie Wellons and senior Morgan Witt each had two hits.  Marshall had three RBI and Witt had two while sophomore Maddie Thatcher had two RBI and scored four runs.  The lead changed hands in each half inning of the six inning and in the top of the seventh.  After St. Joe scored four runs in the top of the seventh to take a 15-14 lead, Woodmore scored one run in the bottom of the frame to force extra innings on a one-out single by Marshall.  Freshman Sydni Buhrow earned the win on the mound pitching five innings and striking out nine.  In game 2, if you hadn't already seen everything in the wild first game, both teams scored 11 runs in their half of the first inning.  The game then settled down and Woodmore scored three more runs in the second inning and four in the fifth to take an 18-11 lead.  St. Joe pushed four runs across in the top of the seventh, but it wasn't enough as the Wildcats earned the win and the sweep of the doubleheader.  Witt has 4-for-4 in the second game with four RBI while Moreno was 3-for-5 with an RBI and Cook had two hits.  Marshall had two RBI in the contest.  Cook pitched the final six innings to get the win.
