Winning pitcher Danielle Hull's two-run single highlighted an eighth-run fifth inning that helped ninth-seeded Margaretville to a 15-9 Section Four Class D first-round softball victory at No. 8 Gilboa on Friday.

It marks the second time in three days the teams played. Margaretville beat Gilboa, 6-4, in the Delaware League crossover championship Tuesday at Jefferson.

Gilboa (10-5), the eighth seed, took a 9-5 lead by scoring six times in the bottom of the fourth.

"We made a lot of mental errors in that inning," Gilboa coach Dan McGlynn said of Margaretville's big fifth inning.

Hull held Gilboa scoreless over the last four innings.

Olivia Todd had two hits, two runs and two RBIs, and Sara Batka went 2-for-4 for Margaretville (10-4), which will travel to top-seeded Afton (12-3) at 4:30 p.m. Thursday for a quarterfinal. Brittany Brand had two hits and two RBIs for Gilboa.
