Summerville loaded the bases in the bottom of the fifth inning and then took care of business.

The Green Wave softball team (28-5), buoyed by a six-run fifth inning, rolled to a 10-3 victory over Wando (22-11) in the Class AAAA playoffs.

Summerville will host the Lower State finals Friday, when it will play the team that advances out of the losers bracket with a win Wednesday. That team will have to defeat Summerville twice Friday in order to advance to the state championship series.

"Wando hit the ball tonight, but we made some good defensive plays," Summerville coach Heather Tucker said. "Later in the game, we had some kids hit the ball and some others lay down some nice bunts to put some pressure on them."

Summerville scored four runs against Wando in the first inning, including two that came off a homerun by Rochelle Lyda that drove in pinch runner Lauren Keefer.

Wando cut the lead in half in the fourth, scoring off an RBI-single by MK Parnell and a walk that came with the bases loaded and pitcher Katie Denning at the plate.

Then Summerville had its big inning. The Wave loaded the bases on an error and bunt singles from Nicole Seavey and Malori Myers. Summerville followed with run-scoring singles by Sarah Montei, Alexa Ritchie and Ashley Muckelvaney.

Wando only managed one run after that off a single by Lindsay Newman.

Myers picked up the win, pitching a complete game and allowing only six hits. Denning took the loss.

Muckelvaney, Seavey, Myers, and Tricia Sizemore all had two hits each for Summerville, which totaled 11.
