High school softball: Salem Hills edges Provo 1-0, clinches Region 8 title
Of that play, Cowden said, "I didn't think at all. I just told myself, 'I've got this.'"
An error in communication between Davis and Tuttle led to Maio reaching first, but Davis quickly corrected that by fielding a bunt from Lindsay Rowley and throwing her out at first.
Cowden continued: "I knew Kenna (Davis) would get the bunt, and I knew I was there."
Bohling then got the next batter to strike out, ending the game.
For her part, Salem Hills' pitcher knew the game was won "when we got the last out in the seventh — not until then."
Despite the outcome, Ventura said, "Our win (against Salem Hills) last time helped us believe that we can come from behind and win close games. We are both good teams and this game will help both teams going into the state tournament."
"I'm grateful to play Provo at the end of the year to keep us sharp for some upcoming tough competition," said Salem Hills coach Renae Kinghorn.
Troy Bohling is the coordinator of school services for Nebo School District. He was previously an assistant principal at Salem Hills High School from 2008-12. His daughter Kirtlyn plays for Salem Hills. He can be contacted at email@example.com.
