Boswell hosted Denton Ryan in game two of the Bi-District playoffs Friday, April 28, 2017. The Lady Raiders scored first but the Pioneers never relented. The Pioneers rallied in the fifth and scored four runs, Kalei Villegas got the inning started and the team executed a series of bunts to get Denton Ryan off balance and plate the runs. Kelsy Paris and Julie Kennedy each doubled in the inning as well and Boswell tied the game in the sixth. In the seventh, Julie Kennedy led off with a single to left field, Paige Young bunted her to second. It was one out and the winning run on second base, Emma Blagrave hit a screaming line drive to center field scoring to end the game and force Denton Ryan to game three. A walk-off double led Boswell past Denton Ryan with a final score of, 7-6.
Exceptional pitching in the circle by Julie Kennedy and strong defense behind her kept the Pioneers in the game. It was a high moment in the Pioneer season to see the tenacity and never quit spirit!
