Aubrie Dickson came through with a walk-off triple to beat a tough Union team. Glenbrook led most of the game 2-0 but in the fourth inning the Lady Lions managed to score a pair of runs off Alyssa Martin to tie things at 2-2.

In the bottom of the fifth, Amber Lovitt reached on an error and advanced to second base on a past ball. That’s when Dickson dug in and smoked a ball to the gap in right center, bringing Lovitt around from second to score the winning run and send the Lady Apaches to the championship game against Tensas Academy.
