McDuffie singled to put runners on the corners for Payge Redman, who tripled home the two runners and made it 10-1.
Redman then scored on a wild pitch to end the game via the 10-run rule.
Coach Redman said that it was nice to beat a county rival.
“Just to get a win at home was big too,” she said. “A lot of our girls are friends with the girls from Zionsville, so they can have a few bragging rights.”
After playing two lesser teams in their second and third games of the tournament, Redman said she was happy with the way her team ended pool play.
Especially after beating Hebron 10-0 Saturday with a “subpar” effort.
“We had a little talk after last night’s game,” Redman said “I think they went into that game knowing they were going to win, and we got a little lazy. We won, but I wasn’t pleased with how we won it. We had a little heart-to-heart before this game, and they stepped it up and did a nice job.”
Lebanon will play Don Ayres Times Corner in the semifinals today. Lebanon defeated them 12-9 Thursday.
If they win the game, they will play for the championship at 5 p.m.
“We have to be aggressive on the bases and get our bunts down,” Redman said. “We have to play some small ball. A lot of these girls aren’t used to having to charge a bunt. We have some quick, speedy girls and we just have to get our bunts down and run the bases well.”
