(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— Lafayette junior Jori Winn knew she wanted to redeem herself after allowing Mid-Buchanan to tie the game on a passed ball in seventh inning Monday night. 

"I was kind of down on myself and I was like, I have to make it up to myself for my team, so I really felt bad and then I was up in the count and was just looking for a pitch to hit and she gave me one," Winn said. 

With the Fighting Irish down one, 3-2, in the bottom of the seventh inning, Winn just needed to knock in the runner to tie it back up to keep Lafayette's chances alive, but instead Winn had a better idea. 

She hit her first career high school walk-off home run to give Lafayette the dramatic 4-3 victory. 

"She probably puts more time in hitting than anybody else and started off the year not doing as well as she thinks she should be doing and I believe in her," Lafayette head coach Jeff Leake said. "She got a chance to get us a win and she did it."

Lafayette hosts St. Pius tonight at Heritage Park.

Tomorrow we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Saturday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
