Both Redbank Valley and Union softball teams are trying to finish out the regular season ... with games.
Monday’s Redbank at Union matchup was canceled due to the weather and wet fields while Union’s Tuesday home game with Cranberry was also wiped out due to field conditions.
Wednesday, the 9-5 Lady Bulldogs will try to get on the field for the first time in a week with a home game against Clarion-Limestone in what would be their final regular-season game on the schedule.
From there, it’s off to the District 9 Class 2A playoffs that start next week. While pairings and schedules come out later this week, it appears that the Lady Bulldogs will be part of at least a five-team field. Curwensville (11-6), the Lady Bulldogs, Johnsonburg (10-6), Cranberry (8-5) and Kane (6-6) all had similar records going into this week, so possible pairings will be hard to figure.
Union (0-12), also off since last Wednesday, is scheduled to wrap up its season Thursday at A-C Valley.
