    Williamstown senior Tori Wilhoit blasted a three-run homerun in the top of the sixth inning to give the Lady Demons (12-14) a 7-3 advantage in their game at Carroll Monday night. That ended up being the difference maker in the game, as the visitors defeated the Lady Panthers, 7-6.

    “The three-run homer, that was the difference in this game, and that’s on my shoulders,” Carroll head coach Ken Blair said. “That’s my inexperience calling a softball game.”

    With a three-run lead, Zach Wise hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth to blow the game wide open.
