Patiently, Maine West edges Leyden
May 29, 2015 10:04 PM -
Fans had to wait an extra two days to watch the Class 4A Maine West regional softball semifinal between the host Warriors and No. 8 seed Leyden. The game was originally scheduled for Wednesday but pushed back due to rain this week. For those on hand for the rescheduled contest on Friday, it was worth the wait. The two teams kept things interesting from start to finish before the No. 11 Warriors held on for a 5-4 triumph to advance to Saturday's 11 a.m. championship against No. 2 Oak Park-River Forest, a 10-0 winner over No. 15 Maine East on Thursday.
