Softball loses two in extras

Back-to-back extra-inning losses last week dropped the Glencoe-Silver Lake softball team to 5-7 overall and 5-3 in the Wright County West Conference this spring.
“We’re certainly having trouble scoring lately,” coach Steve Davis said. “We just can’t get the bats going.”
The Panthers’ losing streak hit three games after a 3-2 home defeat to Dassel-Cokato in eight innings on Tuesday, May 5, was followed up with a 7-6 nine-inning setback at Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity one day later.
Tuesday’s contest featured both teams scoring in the opening inning, setting up a 1-1 deadlock that lasted until the first added frame. The visiting Chargers began the eighth inning with a pair of runs to claim a 3-2 advantage. While GSL answered back with a run of its own in the bottom of the stanza, the Panthers could not find the equalizer and fell by a lone tally.
Becca Green and Jordan Rolf split GSL’s two RBI in the game, with Josie Schmitt and Ryley Oliver scoring once apiece to account for the Panthers’ run total. Moriah Maunu pitched all eight innings, allowing 11 hits and three earned runs, while striking out four. Maunu was also GSL’s only player to record two hits in the game.
