By PATRICK SLACK
Royalton fell behind 9-0 in the first inning, but slowly chipped away at the Rebels lead, Wednesday.
Finally, junior Kalee Petron delivered a two-out, two-run single in the fifth to put Royalton ahead for the first time, 12-11.
Eagle Valley came back to go ahead 13-12, but the Royals had one more rally in them in the bottom of the seventh.
With senior Kelsey Petron on second base after a walk and steal with two outs, sophomore Jacquline Nichols blasted a walk-off home run to give Royalton a stunning 14-13 win.
Nichols finished with three hits, three RBIs and three runs and senior Allison Popp went 3-for-4.
