Free State led Game One, 1-0, but the Eagles won it with a two-run, error-filled fifth.

"In the first game it seemed like that series of errors made it hard for us to come back," Free State's Sara Katich said. "But in the second game we really pulled together and regrouped and had more confidence."

Ann Leiker started both games for FSHS and took the loss in each game.

"I went ahead and started Ann for the second game," Pine said, "but they had her timed pretty well. So then I had to put Lacey (Baxter) in. We're running a little low on pitchers. The girls do a good job though."

Pine cited Katich for her play in the doubleheader.

"Sara was an awesome third base," she said. "She had a great pair of games after getting down with a few errors."

The Firebirds will play host to Shawnee Mission Northwest on Tuesday.
