CLEAR SPRING - Every girl in the starting lineup for the Clear Spring Blazers reached base safely on Monday.
The combination of that fine offensive performance and the solid pitching of junior Stacey Yeakle helped the Blazers beat the Northern Garrett Huskies 12-1 in a Class 1A West Region quarterfinal playoff game.
The game was stopped after 4 1/2 innings because of the 10-run rule.
Clear Spring will now play at Southern Garrett on Wednesday at 4:30 in the region semifinals. If Clear Spring wins on Wednesday, it will advance to the region championship game. The Blazers have advanced to the region title game 10 times in the previous 12 years, which includes eight straight years from 1991 to 1998.
