Three Not The Charm

The first two county squads to take the field for play-off softball action learned something; the third time is not the charm. Mabel-Canton (#8, 3-13) hosted Hope Lutheran (#9, 3-11). In the first inning, Patriot Tiahia Aune hit a 2-run inside-the-park HR. The Coug’s response: 11 unanswered runs. Sophomore catcher Lydia Geving accounted for over half her team’s RBI’s. She ended with a nifty 3-4, 5 RBI, 2 R, SB day. Bailey Hanson (2-4, R, SB) drove in three runs. One-two hitters Abby Hanson (3-4, RBI, SB) and Hannah Nolte (0-1, 3 BB’s) each scored three times as M-C downed HL for the third time this year 13-3 in five. Kristina Mengis (7 IP, 3 R, 4 H, 1 BB) pitched well in victory.

In Spring Valley, four-seed GMLOK (8-11) hosted 5-seed PEM (6-14) in 1AA East action, despite Mother Nature (similar 1A contests were postponed). It was back and forth: 1-0 PEM, 1-1 tie, 3-1 PEM, 3-3 tie, 5-3 GMLOK, 7-5 PEM courtesy of a Catherine DeVetter Grand Slam HR, 7-7 tie. In the bottom of the 6th, Haley Colton led off with a 2B. A wild pitch and an Emily Schlitter RBI-groundout later gave GMLOK an 8-7 lead, which held. For the third time on the season GMLOK’s Bulldogs beat PEM’s Bulldogs. Schlitter got the win (final 3 1/3 innings, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB’s). Colton (2-4, 2B, SB, 2 R), Steph Russell (2-4, SB, R), and Hannah Corson (2-3, 3 RBI) supplied the offense.

Wet Week…

With every 1A East Thursday game postponed due to rain, the games were played Friday. Eight-seed M-C (4-13) bowed to 1-seed L-A (18-2) 11-0 in 5 innings. The Cougars end 2012 with a 4-14 record. In Wabasha, things were much closer between the 4th seeded Falcons (11-9) and 5th seeded R-P (10-10). W-K squeaked out a 3-2 victory, ending the Trojans season at 10-11. In Chatfield, the 2nd seeded Gophers (15-5) and 7th seeded FC/L Falcons (7-12) continued with the ‘third not a charm’ theme. Chatfield scored the first seven runs. A 2-run triple by Jordan O’Connor and a subsequent 2-run HR by Alex Peterson crept the Falcons closer (7-4). The Goph’s cemented it in the 6th though, scoring six runs. Katie Jech’s third hit (3-4), second RBI, started it. MaKenzie Miller’s 2-run single capped her great day (3-4, 2B, 3B, 5 RBI, 3 R). Sarah Costello (2-4, 2B, HR, 3 RBI) then hit her 5th HR of the year, a two-run shot, capping the inning. The Gophers took out FC/L for the third time this season, 13-7. FC/L ends the season .....

Much to their Lemay

Mon, May 7th, 2012
Posted in All Sports

It’s only a coincidence “Lemay” is a combination of the words lament and dismay. It’s only a coincidence. For Fillmore Central/Lanesboro softball, Wabasha-Kellogg’s Sophie was a bringer of both words. W-K’s chief hurler shut down the FC/ .....
