Jacobs 19, Woodstock North 8: Normally 8 errors would spell doom for a team, but the Golden Eagles (13-10) used 10 Thunder miscues to cruise to a Fox Valley Conference crossover victory. Teaghan Richman and Taylor Gagliano each had a double and drove in a run to help winning pitcher Kelsey Peters survive a rough start.

CL South 6, McHenry 5: It took multiple rallies for the Gators but they finally knocked off FVC Valley leader McHenry. CLS tied things up in the third with 4 runs and again came back with 2 runs in the fifth to take the lead for good. Sam McLean (2 RBI) and Taylor Kassel (RBI) both went 2-for-4 with a run scored. Sam Burgard earned the win in the circle with a line of 7 hits on 5 runs, 2 walks and 7 strikeouts in 7 innings pitched.

Batavia 10, Elgin 9: Elgin (11-14, 6-6) jumped out to an 8-run first-inning lead only for it to vanish in walk off fashion for the Bulldogs in an Upstate Eight River heartbreaker. Anna Eckholm (3-for-4) belted a grand slam, her sixth homer of the season, along with 2 doubles, Jessica Rago smacked 2 doubles and Melanie Berg went 3-for-4 with 2 runs scored for the Maroons. Rago suffered the loss in the circle.

Grayslake Central 4, Huntley 2: Haley Spannraft and Megan Baczewski (RBI) both cranked out 2 hits for the Red Raiders (14-8), but a grand slam by pitcher Brandy Heraty in the sixth ultimately lifted the Rams to a Fox Valley Conference crossover win.

St. Charles East 13, Streamwood 3: The Sabres (4-12, 3-10) were down by just 1 going into the fifth when the floodgates opened for the Saints in Upstate Eight River action. Kaitlyn Hedger, who also took the loss, singled home 2 runs for Streamwood.
