Last weekâ€™s win over Winston Academy was huge for the Diamond Raiders of Oak Hill Academy.
The Lady Raiders gutted out a one-run victory that kept their playoff hopes alive.
They are going to be trying to stay in the post-season hunt this evening, as they face off against the Lady Mavericks of Manchester Academy, at home.
The playoff chances are still faint, but they are there, and the Lady Raiders can still make it in if all of the cards fall in the right places.

Itâ€™s been a tale of one-run ball games for the Lady Eagles over the last two weeks. Theyâ€™ve won some, and they have fallen as well. Last Thursday, the Hebron girls had a bout with Kemper Academy, at home.
On this one-run occasion, the Lady Eagles prevailed by a 2-1 score.
â€śWe moved Freshman Alaina Hill into the leadoff spot on Tuesday and it sure paid off today,â€ť said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley.
The game was scoreless through the first two innings, as Chloe Tapley took to the circle for Hebron, as she has done faithfully all season.
