Fremont 10-0 Tri County 7-2
The Packers crossed the plate four times in the first inning to jump out to the lead then hung on for the win. Brianna Regeczi ripped a trio of hits and Lily Williams collected two and scored3 times. Maggie Degen and Rhi Pafford each finished with a pair of hits as well. Haley Zerlaut picked up the mwin from the slab.
The nightcap was a different game from the slugfest opener. A pitchers duel saw the teams go scoreless until the 6th when the Vikings put a pair on the board. The Pack did not answer and the teams ended with a split.
Pafford continued to get her bat on the ball lacing a pair of doubles and Morgan Carson singled and doubled but the Vikes were able to quell each scoring threat to preserve the shutout win.
Zerlaut pitched again and this time was saddled with the loss.
Holton 7-12 White Cloud 0-1
On Tuesday, the Varsity Girls got a 1st hand look as to why Holton is leading the conference as they dropped both ends of their doubleheader. In Game 1 the girls were held to 5 hits and fell by a score of 7 – 0. The 2nd game was not any better as they collected just 2 hits, one of which was a solo HR from Hannah Brown for a 12 – 1 6 inning score.
