The most important thing for the Basehor-Linwood softball team on Monday was that it do the little things right — be smart at the plate, run the bases wisely and make the routine plays on defense.

When you're the No. 1 seed in the Class 4A regional tournament, that's usually all it takes to dispose of an eighth seed.

That proved to be the case against Atchison.

The Bobcats scattered numerous hits and took advantage of five Atchison errors in a 15-0 victory that lasted just four innings at Eudora High School.

Pitcher Shelby Pierce allowed just one hit in the victory.

BLHS advances to play Eudora in the semifinals at 3 p.m. Tuesday. The championship game will be played at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
