Ali Luft hit a 3-run triple in the 5th inning as Riley defeated Marian 8-7 in a battle of High School Softball unbeatens Tuesday at Marian.
The Wildcats improved to 22-0 on the season while Marian dropped to 15-1.
Riley led 5-2 in the 3rd inning, when Knights sophomore Cassie Young blasted a 3-run homer to tie the game.
It stayed that way until the 5th when Luft cleared the bases with a triple to put Riley up 8-5. Marian would score two runs in the final innings to close within one but could never tie it up again.
