CEDAR LAKE | So far so good for the Hanover Central Wildcats. And junior pitcher Ashley Yoways.

In Tuesday night's Class 3A softball regional, much of the game was played dancing between raindrops. But the storm hit around 8:15 p.m. and suspended the remainder of the game until 5 today.

Hanover Central leads Griffith 4-0 while batting with a runner on second and two outs in the bottom of the fifth.

Yoways has yet to allow a hit to the Panthers (13-11).

“She's a little off in her pitch location,” Hanover coach Larry McMillen said of Yoways. “I just told the girls in the pole barn that we have to come out (today) and finish the job. We haven't done anything until we finish the job.”

Hanover (17-9) scored one run in the first after two were out when Griffith sophomore pitcher Blair Morton beaned three consecutive batters and then walked in a run.

“I think it was a little bit of jitters,” Griffith coach Don Bence said.

Neither team had a hit into the bottom of the fourth until the Wildcats' Christina Zychowski doubled home a run. Later in the inning, Yoways had a two-out two-run single to make it 4-0.

The winner of this game will advance to Saturday's Class 3A Twin Lakes Semistate.

“This might be a blessing in disguise,” Bence said. “It gives us a chance to regroup and come back at them.”
