The Beaver Dam softball team hosts Slinger tonight in a WIAA Division One Sectional Semifinal at the BDHS Diamond.
The Golden Beavers (16-3) advanced to the Sectional with an 8-1 win over Watertown last Thursday while Slinger (17-7) doubled up Hartford 8-4.
The #1 seed Beaver Dam squad tied Mount Horeb for the Badger North Championship while Slinger was 3rd in the North Shore behind league champ Cedarburg and 2nd place Hartford.
These two teams last met on May 29th, 2018 in a Division One Sectional Semifinal when the Owls picked up a 6-4 win. Slinger’s tournament run went all the way to the State Semifinals where they fell to Burlington.
The first pitch tonight is set for 5pm with pregame coverage on DailyDodge TV set for 4:45pm.
The winner of tonight’s game heads to Hartford on Wednesday for a matchup against either Oshkosh West or Neenah with a trip to state on the line.
