"Like many teams, the Beaver Area High School softball team had a preseason goal to finish the regular season undefeated.
Also like many teams, that goal was put into peril very early in the season.
In the second game of the season the Bobcats entered the seventh inning of a game on the road against Mohawk trailing, 2-1. Sophomore Ashley Kondracki stepped up with a game-tying solo home run to force extra innings and Beaver would ultimately win, 3-2, in nine innings.
Just like that, the Bobcats were 2-0. The next 10 regular-season wins would lack most of that drama."
