SAVANNAH, Mo. - Big showdown for the Missouri class 3 quarter finals in the state tournament Saturday as Savannah High school took on Oak Grove.

Savannah jumped out to an early 5-1 lead to start the game, but had miscues at first base defensively that allowed for Oak Grove to get runners on base, and keep the line moving throughout the middle innings which kept the Panthers in the ball game.

Oak Grove would have the game tied up in the fifth inning at eight all, and Summer Collier for Oak Grove would essentially hit the solo game winning home run and give the Panthers the one run lead going into the final innings.

Savannah was not able to respond in the seventh as they would strike out with a runner on second base.

Oak Grove would win the game 9-8 and advance to the semi-final round to play Hillsboro on Friday Oct. 26.

Moving into the weekend, we will be keeping an eye on the potential for flooding rain and strong thunderstorms. On Saturday, the rain might hold off until the afternoon but will be widespread late Saturday and into Sunday. This is when the heaviest rain should fall. Expect rainfall totals to be anywhere from 2-4 inches. This could bring area streams and rivers to flood stage so make sure you are watching out for that.
