Sunday, April 13, 2014 — In high school softball games this week, West Stanly moved one game closer to clinching the regular-season conference title, while North Stanly faced Queen’s Grant in a doubleheader.

Thursday’s Game

West Stanly 3, Parkwood 2 (8)

The defending 2A state champion Colts continued the team’s recent winning ways on Thursday with another dramatic walkoff win.

Brennan Broadaway provided the walkoff hit for the second straight night as the Colts increased the team’s current win streak to 10 with a 3-2 extra-inning victory.

Broadaway also earned the win on the mound for West Stanly (13-4, 7-0 RRC).

Abby Pate and Broadaway each had two hits for the Colts, while Maddie Brown added a hit and Shelby Green contributed a solo home run.

The win gives West Stanly a two-and-a-half game lead in the standings over Central Academy and a three-game lead over Mount Pleasant.
