Through a month of softball action, the Chatfield Gophers amassed as many wins as losses (5 each). In four days, they doubled their victory total. The week began with a double-header versus FC-L. In game 1, Chatfield prevailed 5-2. It was a combination of solid pitching (Jennifer Hanson/Grace Sagdalen combined for a 4-hitter), good defense (0 errors), and enough offense (Morgan Boyum went 2-3 with an RBI). FC-L's Connor Nagle hit a solo HR, her 3rd blast of the year. In game 2, the Gophers got out-slugged 12 to 7, but won 11 to 9. Kirsten Keefe went 2-3 with 2 RBI's. Nashia Soland went 3-4 with 3 RBI's for FCL. Two days later, the Gophers traveled to Lewiston for a showdown with the undefeated #7 Cardinals. Sagdalen again took the mound and surrendered two runs on just three hits (win). The Gopher D was again strong (1 error to L-A's 4). Boyum went 3-3. Chatfield upset the Card's 5-2. R-P then came calling for a Friday double-header. Game 1 saw Sagdalen pitch strong again (7 IP, 3 R, 2 H, Win), Boyum hit well again (2-4, 2B, 3 RBI's), while Tori Woltz provided a little extra 'O' (2-4, 2 RBI's). The Goph's prevailed 10-3. Game 2 saw Chat's defense slip (eight errors). However, a 5-run top of the 7th lurched the home ahead, 13-10. They held off a late Trojan rally to pull off a 13-12 victory. Sidney Irish (2-4, 2B, 3B, 3 runs), Keefe (3-5, 2 RBI's), Woltz (2-4, 2 RBI's), and MacKenzie Miller (3 RBI's) provided offense. Kenzie Lind did her part (2-5, RBI, 3 R) for R-P. The wins give Chatfield six straight, and 7 of 8, a 10-5 overall record, or tied for first in the Three Rivers South.
