Mon, May 2nd, 2016
Posted in All Sports

Over recent years, Chatfield and FCL have been softball powers. In the first full week of action, it was same as same. Each was winning again. The Gophers went 4-0. Hitting four home runs, they hammered usually-strong W-K twice. Game one’s final was 12-2 (Belle Berg 4-5, HR, 2 RBI, R; Sydney Gould 3-5, 2B, 3B, 5 RBI; Carissa Campbell 2-4, HR, 2 RBI, 2 R; Megan Cullen 4 2/3 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, Win). Game two’s final was 14-0 in five (Gould 1-3, HR, 3 RBI, R; Megan LaPlante 3-3, HR, 3 RBI, 2 R; Lexi Chase 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, Win). Chatfield then hammered R-P 16-0 in five (LaPlante 3-3, 2B, 4 RBI, 4 R; Gould 2-3, two 2B’s, 3 RBI; Kaylie Bernard 3-4, 2B, 3 RBI, R; Berg 1-2, HR (2), RBI, 2 R; Cullen 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, Win). Versus La Crescent, a Chase RBI single in the top of the 8th proved the game-winner. Chatfield won 4-1 in eight (Gould 3-4, three 2B, 2 RBI; LaPlante 2-4, 2 R, RBI; Chase 8 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 5 K, 0 BB, Win). The Gophers (5-1 overall/TRC) are one big (GMLOK) inning from being 6-0.

FCL scored 50 runs over five straight wins on the week. They went 5-1. They downed M-C 9-4 (FCL: Haley Polin 3-4, 2B, 3B, 2 RBI, 2 R; Katelin Mensink 1-3, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 R; Caitlyn Walsh 7 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 12 K, Win. MC: Lexi Thorson 2-3, RBI, R, 2 SB). FCL then hammered La Crescent 18-5 (Abby Lange 3-4, 3B, 4 RBI, 2 R; Anna Jorgenson 3-4, 2B, RBI, R; Mensink 2-4, 2B, 4 RBI, R; Kaelyn Marzolf Win). PEM fell 8-7 (Taylor Pierce-Sprenger 3-4, 2 R; Shelby Ebner 2-4, 2 R, RBI; Walsh 7 IP, 0 BB, 7 K, Win). FCL trailed 5-1 heading to their fifth (got five runs). Southland fell 10-9 on a game-winning Ebner RBI-single in the bottom of the 7th (Pierce Sprenger 4-4, 2B, 4 R, RBI; Ebner 3-5, RBI, R; Megan Hendrickson 2-4, RBI, 2 R; Walsh 2-4, RBI, R; Polin 2B, 2 RBI). FCL then hosted a Saturday tourney, winning their third straight one-run game, 5-4 over Lake City (A. Jorgenson 2-5, 2B, 2 RBI, R; Walsh Win (3-1); Hendrickson 1-2, 2B, RBI, R). They then fell to Goodhue 6-2 in ten (A. Jorgenson 3-4; Polin 3-5, R; Marzolf 6 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 K). FCL is 3-1 (TRC), 5-2 (overall).
