Jackie Gellner took one for the team, literally, on Tuesday evening in Glen Dale.
The John Marshall center fielder was hit on the foot, with the bases loaded, forcing in the winning run in the Lady Monarchs' wild, 5-4 win over Wheeling Park.
JM leadoff hitter Megan Wise had three hits and came home with the winning run, after a leadoff double to start the bottom of the seventh inning. JM pitcher Alyssa Blake added two hits and an RBI to help herself pick up the win in the circle.
John Marshall, now 8-3 on the season, led 4-0 early in the game, but the Patriots fought back to tie the game at 4-4 in the top of the fifth. Ashleigh Sidon added a solo homerun for the Patriots (1-2).
