Roxana head girls coach Wade Stahlhut was ecstatic over the play of his girls in the contest.

"Our girls looked great," he said. "We have been fortunate that we are clicking on offense. We had a lot of girls who had some selfless at-bats. The entire team did a good job."

Roxana is now 11-13 and goes on to a semifinal game against Breese Mater Dei on Wednesday at 4 p.m. EAWR was eliminated at 7-19.

Stahlhut is excited to move on to the next game and said Breese has an excellent team, but his girls will be ready.

"We are really jelling on the offensive side of the game," he said.
