Tonight, the reigning sixth place in class 3A Mid-Prairie softball team will look to take down the reigning seventh place Davenport Assumption softball team in the regional final.
Both teams placed at state last year, and this year only one will go. The Golden Hawks have been ranked all season long in the top three, while Assumption in not ranked into this game.
Mid-Prairie beat Columbus Junction 17-1 in the first round, and Mount Vernon 4-1 in the second round to get to the final, while Assumption beat Wilton 11-0 in the first round, and then No. 15 Northeast 2-0 in the semi-finals to make it to the finals.
