BERNE — It had to wait an extra day, but top-ranked Bremen defeated No. 5 South Adams, 9-0, to win the Class 2A high school softball regional Wednesday night. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but was pushed back a day due to rain.
The Lady Lions defeated the Starfires in last year’s regional as well, on their way to a state finals appearance. South Adams came in as a four-peat sectional winner.
The Lady Lions (26-2) will now face No. 15 Oak Hill (21-6) in the semi-state semifinal at 11 a.m. on Saturday at Newton Park.
