Courtney Boss pitched a one-hitter to help the Edgerton softball team advance to a WIAA regional final.

Boss struck out 12 and walked none, allowing only a fifth-inning single, and the Crimson Tide topped visiting Evansville, 1-0, in a regional semifinal Tuesday.

The Tide got their lone run in the bottom of the third inning. Jana Downing reached on an error, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt and reached third on a ground ball. Kellan Schmidt then singled to left field to drive Downing home.

Edgerton will face today’s winner between top-seeded McFarland and Edgewood in a regional final Thursday.
