The Souderton softball players sprinted to the banks of the Yellow Breeches Creek and waded into it until they were knee deep. Some still wore their bright red socks. They had plenty to celebrate Thursday after advancing to their first state semifinal in nearly a decade.
The Indians built a five-run lead and hung on to beat Central Mountain, 6-5, in a PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinal at Messiah College.
Morgan Yoder had a two-run single and Angie Carty drove in a run with a bunt single to give Souderton a 6-1 lead in the sixth.
