Vandalia's softball tem held off a late rally on Monday to earn its first win in a regional tournament since 2007.

Wesclin scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, but that would be one run short in a 7-6 win for the Lady Vandals, who now play No. 1 seed Carlyle at Carlyle on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.

Junior Megan Godoyo threw a complete game, striking out four and allowing no earned runs, as Vandalia (4-21) committed six errors in just its fifth regional tournament win in the past 16 seasons.

Senior Morgan Whightsil was 4-for-5 at the plate, and junior Taylor Well turned in a three-hit game.
