Polson, Frenchtown could collide again

 

 

ANACONDA – Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Frenchtown and Polson are on a collision course at the State A softball tournament.

Frenchtown won its only game of the day and Polson won twice on Thursday at the Charlotte Yeoman Fields.

The Broncs (22-1) advanced to the winners’ bracket semifinals where they will face Lewistown on Friday at 2 p.m. Polson (18-5) advanced to face Hamilton (11-12), which survived a 15-14 shootout with Billings Central to advance.

The winners of those games will meet Saturday at 9 a.m. with a berth in the title game on the line.

Polson, the two-time defending state champ, had to beat Frenchtown twice on the final day of last year’s state tournament to secure the crown.

Billings Central 7, Columbia Falls 1

Sarah Stringari went 4 for 4 and also limited Columbia Falls to just the single run as the Rams won their opening-round game.
