MARENGO – After two game of being the hunters, the players on the Kaneland softball team entered the game with a big target on its back.
Facing a revenge-minded Rock Falls team in the championship game of the Class 3A Marengo Sectional, the Knights held off multiple late rallies for a 5-3 win.
"We did what we needed to do to get the job done," Kaneland coach Mike Kuefler said. "We played them earlier this year and the same motivation we have had throughout this postseason – coming back and getting some of these teams that have beaten us in the past – they had the same motivation. Everything they needed they carried in there with them today."
