Bill Iezzi: Eastern Softball Surges

Eastern, a team that showed promise during the regular season, suddenly finds itself in a semifinal of the South Group 4 tournament with Washington Township.

Put the spotlight on pitcher Sam Lemm. She has inspired the Vikings all season. Thursday against Williamstown, the defending state champ, Lemm threw a three hitter, blanking the Braves, 4-0.

Township split wins with Eastern during the regular season, winning their last meeting, 4-1.

With Lemm humming in the circle and some key hits, Eastern could end up in the sectional final.
