Warren, Ike softball lose

Warren starting pitcher Alana Stuart kept the Dragons in the game, trailing 2-0 after four innings, but Elk County Catholic scored 13 runs off relievers over the fifth and sixth innings in a 16-0 nonregion win on Friday at Lady Dragons Field.

After pitching the whole game Thursday at Cathedral Prep on Thursday, Stuart was relieved. ECC’s lead quickly jumped to 9-0 and Lucy Klawuhn’s bases-loaded triple followed by Syd Alexander’s two-run home run to left put the game out of reach in the fifth. The 1A Crusaders (10-4) scored twice more in the top of the sixth.

Stuart and Malysia Sorensen had the only two hits for Warren (2-10).


RUSSELL — The Eisenhower softball team dropped Friday’s game 7-3 to Kane at Werner Park.

One bad inning by Eisenhower did the most damage as the first five innings were a defensive gem for both teams, with good pitching and error-free defense.

The Knights got on the board first in the third inning and then Payton Frank doubled and Julia Gesing ripped a single to give Eisenhower a 1-0 lead.

The Eisenhower lead would hold until the fifth inning when the Wolves pushed across five runs with the help of an error, which scored two runs.

The Knights did score two more runs, but we’re not able to catch Kane, which added two more runs in the top of the seventh.

Eisenhower was led by Gesing and Frank, who went 2-for-3.Gesing, Riley Gafner and Abbie Darr each had an RBI.

The Knights are back in action on Monday when they travel to Iroqouis.
