Tewksbury hopped out to an early two-run lead in its first ever Division 2 state semifinal game on Wednesday. But Bellingham had an answer for the Lady Redmen, coming back to clip the locals and end their historic season.

First baseman Kayla VonKahle drove home the first two runs on Wednesday night in Taunton during the second inning with a two-run single.

But Bellingham responded with the final three runs, winning 3-2 to advance to the state championship game.

Following the victory, Bellingham advanced to the Division 2 championship game, where it will take on Grafton Saturday at 4 p.m. on the diamond of Worcester State University.

Tewksbury, meanwhile, saw its season come to a close after the Redmen won their first ever North Division 2 title to set up Wednesday's meeting with Bellingham.

With the loss, Tewksbury ended its campaign with a record of 18-7 on the year, while Bellingham improved to 24-1 on the season with the semifinal victory.
