It's been nearly a year since Spring Lake's memorable district tournament win over Orchard View when Cardinals' star Megan VanderWal hit what appeared to be the game-winning home run but was called out for not touching first base.
VanderWal wasn't about to make the same mistake twice.
The Cardinals' outstanding pitcher led her team to a pair of wins over the visiting Lakers on Tuesday.
In the opener, she hit a walk-off two-run homer. She emphatically stomped on each bag on the way around the base paths, just to be safe.
