COLUMBIA CITY — For six innings, the Columbia City Lady Eagles clung to a 1-0 lead over visiting Huntington North Lady Vikings.

In the top of the seventh frame, the Lady Vikings scored a run to turn what had been a quickly played ball game into an 11-inning siege.

In the top of the 11th, the Lady Vikings pushed across three runs with two outs to send the Lady Eagles down to a 4-1 defeat.

Columbia City starting pitcher Cassie Vodde had a one-hitter going through the first six innings, recording 11 strikeouts and only one base runner for the first six stanzas.

Vodde would end up recording 19 strikeouts in her 10 innings of work.

The Lady Eagles return to action Saturday when they square off against Mishawaka Marian in a double-header at Morsches Park.
