Simon Kenton blew a nine-run lead but won in walk-off fashion.

Junior catcher Samantha Perkins singled, stole second and scored on a throwing error in the bottom of the seventh to lift the Pioneers to a 14-13 win over Williamstown on Wednesday.

Junior designated hitter Chelcey Broughton tripled home three runs in the bottom of the first to open the scoring and plated one with a double during a six-run second that saw Simon Kenton extend its lead to nine.

The Demons stormed back with 13 runs in the fourth and fifth innings combined to take a four-run lead, 13-9.

But in the bottom of the fifth, Pioneers sophomore right-hander Hannah Perry doubled in two, fifth-grade second baseman Macy Krohman knocked in another with a two-bagger and the tying run came home on a groundout.
