Janesville Craig’s softball team rallied for victory in its regular-season finale Thursday.
The Cougars scored four runs in the top of the seventh inning in a 9-7 Big Eight Conference win over Beloit Memorial.
Craig (10-10, 10-8) trailed 7-5 in the seventh but got four runs, including two-out RBI singles from Morgan Bloomquist and Maddie McCormick.
Beloit went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the seventh.
“It was a great win, and now we can get ready for Stoughton on Monday and the start of the tournament,” Craig coach Kristin Worm said.
Third-seeded Craig hosts sixth-seeded Stoughton at 4:30 p.m. Monday at the Youth Sports Complex.
