Emma Durst started for Williamson, in four and one third innings she allowed six runs on six hits and six walks and struck out three. Emylee Yusko relieved her for one third of an inning and allowed five runs.

For Williamson, Durst had one hit and one RBI, Yusko scored a run and Briana Padgett and Sarah Learn each had one hit.

“The turning point in the game was a Williamson rally in the third," Wyalusing coach John Loomis said. "When Learn got a hit, another reached on error and then it was followed by another hit. Then our catcher, Dietz picked off Durst on first base. It took the wind out of their inning. Dietz has been working hard all year, it was big for us. Ward then doubled off of the fence in the third and it turned the game around for us.”

Wyalusing will be taking on South Williamsport in the Class AA, District IV final on Wednesday, May 31 at the Mosser Complex in Warrior Run. Only one team can advance to the state tournament.
