Brookfield took an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning, as a two-out single by Jaclyn Weydert scored Bailey Parks. A series of goose eggs filled the scoreboard in the middle innings, with Brookfield's Taylor Ewing escaping a nail-biting third and sixth inning rally by the Lady Hornets to keep the one-run advantage. On a sixth inning double steal, with a run scoring on the back end of the play, Brookfield doubled the lead to 2-0.

Hamilton, with three outs to try to salvage the game, rallied in the seventh inning with two runs to send the game to extras, but not without a Brookfield threat being thwarted, with the potential winning run stranded at third base in the bottom of the seventh.

Brookfield's tandem of Gonzalez and Kearns combined to win the game in the home tenth, with Parks hitting a single, then being sacrifice bunted to second base. A Kearns single ended the contest, Brookfield's "home debut" for the 2014 season.

Brookfield is scheduled to host South Shelby in Clarence Cannon Conference action tonight (Thursday night) at 5 o'clock, weather permitting, with Hamilton's next game slated for tonight (Thursday night), against the Higginsville Huskers at the softball field at Penney High School in Hamilton (5:00 PM/weather permitting).
