Malley two-hitter, FC/L SB 1-0

Posted in All Sports

Of the ten 3-Rivers softball teams, Fillmore Central/Lanesboro was the last to begin its season. They did so against Dover-Eyota. One really couldn’t tell the Falcons hadn’t played a game. FC/L put runs on the board in five of six innings. Taylor Case was a thorn in D-E’s side (3-3, 3B, 3 RBI, 2 R, SB; reached in all four plate appearances). Steph Erickson had only one hit, but 3 RBI’s. Victoria Peterson had only one official at bat (a 2B), but reached all four times (2 BB, HBP, SB, R).

And then there was leadoff hitter/pitcher Morgan Malley. She went 2-3 (2B, RBI, 2 SB, 2 R, HBP) at the plate, and then shut down the Eagles from the mound (7 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 9 K’s, 0 BB’s). Factoring in five 1-3-putouts, and Malley (save for a first base-woman and a catcher) single-handedly retired 2/3 of the batters she faced. FC/L retired D-E 9-1.

Home Run: the Calling of the Cards

Three county teams met up with a vaunted Lewiston-Altura squad in softball the week of April 16. All walked away having witnessed the Card’s power first hand. One pulled off a big win. Chatfield got first crack at then 4-0 L-A. Each team had four hits. L-A made theirs count. Alyxandra Hohensee hit a solo HR (1-0 L-A) and Brooke Schilling a 3-run blast (5-0 L-A). Tori Woltz (1-3) drove in the only Gopher run as Chatfield fell 5-1. Schilling did the pitching honors for the Card’s too (7 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 1 BB, 10 K’s, Win).

A night later in Peterson, both R-P (Haley Mueller) and L-A (Natalie Kalmes) slammed a HR. R-P built a 10-5 lead heading to the top of the 7th before holding on for dear life, 10-9. They handed the Cardinals their first loss (while earning their first win). Kenzie Lind, Mariah Mueller, and Kendra Crawford all had two hits for the Trojans. Losing must have aggravated L-A (or the wind was blowing out in Spring Valley). The Cardinals hit five HR’s (Kalmes, Taylor Daley, Miranda Weilandt, and Danielle Harstad times two) versus GMLOK enroot to a 21-3 (5 inning) win. Sydney Johnson was 2-2 for the Bulldogs. It isn’t just Fillmore County foes L-A likes going deep against. They hit seven HR’s in three tournament games in Zumbrota, giving the Cards 15 for the week. They have 20 thru 10 games.
