Youth softball continues to see many intriguing
games at the Field of Dreams facility.
Nell Thomas, Kacie Ramos, Kayla Ramos, Jen Moseley,
Gabby Barcelo and Kelsie McLean scored two runs each as a balanced Kirk Group
team defeated WestTel 16-10 in girls softball action last Saturday.
Three home runs guided Burger King to a narrow 16-12
win over Arch Automotive in girls softball. Meanwhile WestTel outlasted Arch
Automotive 17-10 in girls softball action that wasn’t decided until the final inning.
The teams were tied 6-6 after the first two innings, with Amber Evans belting a
grand slam homer for WestTel in the top of the first.
Not to be outdone, Britteny Purcell smashed her own
grand slam for Arch Automotive in the bottom of the second to tie the score.
Leading just 10-9 going into the final inning, WestTel tallied an impressive
seven runs and then played good defense to secure the victory. Beliquis Bodden,
Samantha Cridland and Britteny Purcell scored two runs apiece for Arch Automotive.
Meanwhile Burger King doubled up Kirk Group 12-6
before frying WestTel by a huge score of 23-2.
Kirk Group and Arch Automotive battled to an
exciting 7-7 tie in recent girls softball action. This game started with a
scoreless top of the first inning. The bottom of the inning had Arch Automotive’s
Belquis Bodden giving up early walks, which resulted in two runs for Kirk
Belquis quickly settled down with a scoreless second
inning, including a strikeout. Kirk Group’s Nell pitched the second inning and
got two quick outs and then walked home a run before being relieved.
Arch Automotive, with its full complement of players,
showed that it can compete with anyone and that its season-opening 16-1 loss to
Kirk Group was not a reflection of its true team.
