Lady Bulldogs fall to North again, blast ranked Westwood
SIOUX CITY — The Le Mars Community softball team split their games Saturday, losing to Sioux City North in the second time in as many days, but winning over Class 1A No. 7 Westwood.
After throwing Brook Berkenpas at the Stars on Friday, the Bulldogs went with Alivia Milbrodt in the circle Saturday hoping for a different result. Unfortunately, the Stars tagged Milbrodt for nine runs in five innings in a 9-7 loss.
Milbrodt did help her own cause in the top of the second with a 2 RBI single which put the Bulldogs in front, but that was the only lead Le Mars held. Brooke Haage continued her hot start to the season with a triple in the third as she scored later in the inning. She also drove in a pair with a single in the sixth. Kady Leusink had 2 RBI of her own on singles in the fourth and sixth.
The Bulldogs blasted Westwood 14-3 in five innings in their other game. An eight-run third was the best inning of the game although the team did score in four of their turns at the plate. The eight-run inning saw 11 batters come to the plate. A pair of errors started off the frame, but there were plenty of hits as well with a 2 RBI triple from Annie Ellis a highlight of the inning. Emily Carlson added her own triple in the fifth as Haage knocked her home with a single.
Berkenpas earned the win as she struck out four.
