Emily Sargent's two-run homer to right-center in the top of the 10th led the fifth-ranked Chieftains (10-3) over the No. 6 Panthers (9-3) and into the postseason in Marlboro. Sargent had a complete game with 24 strikeouts, while Molly McGuire fanned 12 for the Panthers. Ali Lane gave Nashoba a 1-0 lead with her homer in the fifth, and Jen Bombard's RBI single in the seventh sent the game into extras.
