Chippewa Falls advances to state final with 1-0 win over Appleton East

The Chippewa Falls softball team scored one run in the fifth inning and that would be enough to win the WIAA Division 1 semifinal against Appleton East, to send the Cardinals to their first state final since 2009.

With Emily Holldorf on base, junior Evie Schaller drives one to deep centerfield to send Holldorf home and the Cards took their 1-0 lead. It was Schaller's 8th RBI of the tournament, she previously had a grand slam in the quarterfinals.

Amanda Jaquish gets the win for the Cardinals giving up only four hits and striking out four batters.

The Cardinals will play in the championship Saturday at 5:30pm.
