Independence tops Marion 1-0 in softball regional semi

INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) — The Independence Mustangs caught a break on Saturday night as they topped Marion 1-0 to advance to a class 4A regional final. The win marked the second straight year the Mustangs ended the Indians season.

That break came in the fourth inning came in the third inning when a Marion pick-off attempt went awry at third base. The error allowed Mary Puffett to score the lone run in a ballgame that saw Indee pitcher MacKenzie Hupke and Marion’s Megan Kessens combine for zero earned runs.

Independence will face Iowa City Liberty in Tuesday’s regional final.
