Madison held the lead, through light rain and thunder, up until the top of the sixth inning when Central went ahead 3-2. Central kept that lead into the bottom of the seventh. With one out, Madison senior Anna Kelliher singled. Abby Erb came in to run for her. Sam Atwell put down a nice sacrifice bunt moving Abby to second, and eventually third. Freshman Raegan Clatterbaugh worked the count to full and then walked, and stole second. With 2 outs and an 0-2 count, sophomore Kaitlin Aylor hit her second double of the night, scoring Erb and Clatterbaugh, and giving Madison the win.
