No. 12 Davenport was down 4-1 to begin the seventh and needed timely hitting to overcome the deficit Friday at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.

Bulldog seniors Tristan Phillips and Sabrina McDow homered in the top of the seventh to propel Davenport to a 6-4 victory against No. 1 Roff. It earned a spot in the Class A state title game at 4 p.m. Saturday against Binger-Oney.

“I can't believe this,” Phillips said. “I'm just so proud of my team, so excited.”

Phillips hit 2 for 4 with a double and a home run, and McDow hit 2 for 4 with a triple and a home run.

“We spent a lot of time hitting, and I said we're going down swinging,” Davenport coach Brandy Chavez said. “We're swinging away, and that's what they did.”
