GSL tops Watertown-Mayer in softball playoff opener

An eight-game losing streak came to a close as the Glencoe-Silver Lake softball team won its postseason opener with a 3-2 victory at Watertown-Mayer to kick off the Section 5AA Tournament on Friday, May 19.
The Panthers never trailed in the game. Brianna Wraspir scored GSL’s first run in the second inning by scoring on a two-out error after initially getting on base with a single. 
Jessica Lemke singled, stole second and eventually slid home following a pair of Royal errors to extend GSL’s lead to 2-0 in the third inning. 
Watertown-Mayer answered with a run of its own in the third inning to make the count 2-1 in favor of the visitors. GSL threatened in the fourth inning, but did not muster up a tally.
