Holmgren's homer lifts Churchill softball to 2nd round

Laina Holmgren broke a 5-5 tie in the top of the sixth inning Wednesday with a two-run home run as the Churchill Lancers went on to defeat The Dalles Wahtonka 7-6 in the first round of the OSAA softball playoffs.

After trailing the Eagle-Indians 2-0, Danielle Duman got the scoring started for CHS with an RBI single in the fifth. The Lancers soon tied it up on a bases loaded walk.

Then Avery Daniels delivered the big blow with a bases-clearing three-run double to the fence in left field as the Lancers took a 5-2 advantage.

After TDW came back to lock it back up at 5, that's when Holmgren went deep.
