The Cardinals (15-3, 8-0) claimed the COC championship with a 4-1 victory over the Republic Tigers on Thursday. 

After Republic scored first on a leadoff triple and one-out single, Keira Jackson delivered on opposite field triple and scored on misplayed grounder off the bat of Stacy Tyndall to even the game at 1 after the first inning.

Peyton Hawkins started the third inning with a single and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Jackson.  Tyndall reached on fielders choice to put runners at the corners and Haidyn Berry drove them both home with a double to the right center field fence (Click here for highlight) and a 3-1 lead.

Webb City added another run in the fourth when Reanna Blinzler singled, Hawkins was hit by a pitch, and Jackson singled to load the bases.  Alyssa Jennings drove Blinzler home with a basehit.

Jackson, Berry and Blinzler each had two hits on the day.  

Berry earned the win, scattering six hits and striking out 13 and not walking a batter.

Webb City will travel to Kansas City for the weekend before finishing conference play at Carthage on Tuesday and their final home game next Thursday with Kickapoo.
