Grand Blanc won both games, 4-3, the first one in eight innings, after trailing 3-0 in both.

Jennifer Woolard pitched a two-hitter in the opener, striking out seven and allowing no earned runs.

Grand Blanc erased a 3-0 deficit in the fifth on an error, singles by Brianna Ward, Mahogany Turner and Megan Mullally and Taylor Seaton’s RBI grounder.

The Lady Bobcats then won it in the bottom of the eighth when Ashley Browne led off with a double and scored on a wild throw to the outfield as she was moving to third on a passed ball. Ward and Turner each had two hits in the game.

Megan Stamm was the hitting star in game two with two doubles and two RBI. Grand Blanc again trailed, 3-0, in the fourth, but got two back in that inning on Ward’s single, Stamm’s RBI double and Seaton’s run-scoring single.

The Lady Bobcats won it in the fifth on a walk and RBI doubles by Stamm and Alisha Wells. Seaton was the winning pitcher.

Grand Blanc took a 4-0 record into Easter
