Mid-Prairie falls in 3A quarterfinal

Posted:
FT. DODGE (KWWL) -

Mid-Prairie built an early lead but saw it disintegrate as they'd drop their state tournament opener to Ballard 5-4.

The Golden Hawks Emmie Leinen drove in a pair of runs in the second, while another would score on a fielders choice in the 4th.  Mid-Prairie took a 3-0 lead into the 6th inning. 

Ballard, however, busted out the big bats drilling a pair of home runs in the inning.  Annie Stolte started it with a solo shot, while Katie Ahrenholtz 2 run shot tied it at 3.  The Bombers 2 7th inning runs would provide the difference as they'd advance to the class 3A state semifinals.
