It took a while, but the Chelsea softball team took control of the SEC White after completing a 14-8 win over Tecumseh that was suspended earlier this month.

The game was suspended after six innings with the game tied at 8-8 and the winner of the game would take over the top spot in the conference.

The Bulldogs made the trip to Tecumseh for the continuation and wasted no time getting things going.

Kylie Beckel started the seventh with a single and Charlotte Diesing walked to put two runners on. Dani Wahl followed with a double to plate Beckel to put Chelsea on top. After two pop outs, Jenna Ouelette walked to load the bases and Kaydee Absher came through with the big blow of the inning with a bases clearing triple to make it 12-8. Ella Root singled to drive home Absher and after a Lily McCalla single, Beckel singled for the second time in the inning to make it 14-8.

Tori Parisho allowed one single in the seventh, but a strike out and a ground out ended it and the Bulldogs took over the top spot in the SEC White.

The loss dropped Tecumseh to 13-3 in the White and was the Indians final conference game.

Chelsea improved to 11-2 in the White and still had three league games left to play, including a make-up doubleheader with Jackson.

One of the games was played Wednesday when the Bulldogs got a scare from Skyline but rallied late for a 10-4 win over the Eagles.

Skyline took a 2-0 lead in the first and Chelsea battled back to tie the game at two in the fifth.

The Eagles answered with two runs in the bottom of the fifth to take a 4-2 lead.

Chelsea rallied in the sixth with six runs, with Mia Kuboushek coming through with a pinch hit single to drive in the first run.

Samantha Dark doubled in a run and Avery Lay came through with a two-run single to put the Bulldogs up 6-4. After a walk, Root followed with a two-run single, and Chelsea’s lead grew to 8-4.

The Bulldogs added two more runs in the seventh to finish off the 10-4 win.

Lay finished with two hits and three RBI, while Dark and Root each had a hit and two RBI. Ouellette and Piper Diesing each had a hit and RBI, McCalla a hit and two runs scored, and Absher and Beckel a hit and RBI each.

Parisho struck out 14 for the win in the circle for the Bulldogs.

Chelsea improved to 12-2 in the White and will make up its doubleheader with Jackson Thursday, May 30. A split with the Vikings will clinch a tie for the league title and a sweep will give the Bulldogs the outright championship.
