The Lady Blue Jays kept momentum from the game prior and scored two runs in the top of the first inning. Eisenhower said “not today” as the Lady Eagles scored ten runs in the bottom of the first inning to take a commanding lead and sway momentum back to the Baby Blue. All that was left from there was to count the outs to end the game. J.J. Williams forced a ground ball to Alexis Underwood, she fielded it and stepped on the bag and mayhem ensued as the Lady Eagles stormed the field and jumped up and down in the pitchers circle as the 2020 Lady Eagles had made history as the first ever Eisenhower Softball team to make it to the State Tournament. The Lady Eagles will take on the Durant Lady Lion in the quarterfinals on Thursday, Oct. 15, at 1:30 p.m. on Field Three at USA Hall of Fame complex in Oklahoma City.
