With a trip to state softball on the line Don Bosco took on Marquette Catholic in Manchester.

Don Bosco Coach Jane Becker was also looking for her 800th career victory.

In the top of the third inning Justine Kalmes drew a bases loaded walk to make the score 1-0 in favor of Marquette.

In the fourth inning  Nicole Blum scored on a errant throw from the catcher, putting the Mohawks up by a score of 2-0.

It would stay that way until the bottom of the seventh when Brittany Hickson hit the walk-off game winning double, Don Bosco moves on to the state tournament by the score of 3-2.
