WYALUSING -- Morgan Wagner and Laura Cashner combined for a one-hitter as Danville defeated Roosevelt Trail League (RTL), 8-4, in the consolation bracket of the Little League 9-10 softball Section 3 tournament on Tuesday night.

Wagner started and gave up the one hit--a RBI infield single by Laci Norton in the third inning. Wagner worked 4 2/3 innings, fanning 10 batters, while walking 12.

Cashner snuffed out a bases-loaded RTL with her lone strikeout in the top of the fifth inning. She set RTL down in order in the sixth to seal the victory.

Offensively, Danville had four hits against RTL starter Macey Schillinger, including a RBI triple by Wagner in the four-run fourth inning.

Cashner added a two-run single in the frame. Lindsay Cashner also had a hit.

Bailey Hockenburg, who scored three runs for Danville, added a RBI double in the second inning.

Schillinger recorded nine strikeouts and allowed nine walks for RTL.

Danville will face Minersville, a 4-2 loser to Newberry, in tonight's consolation final, starting at 5:30 p.m.
