Comets and Arrows Split Two Games at Hannah Park

By Craig Olson - Fergus Falls, MN

On Thursday, the Hillcrest softball team split a double header with Ashby at Hannah Park in Fergus Falls. 

In game one, the Comets prevailed over the Arrows 2-1 behind the pitching of junior Maddie Heiser. Heiser struck out 5 and gave up just 4 hits. In the first inning, sophomore Juliana Undseth drove a ball into the left center gap for a double, scoring freshman shortstop MacKenzie Foss. Ashby tied the game in the top half of the third. Later in the third, catcher Audra Ewan was hit by a pitch, stole second, went to third on a fielder's choice and scored on a passed ball. The run was all the Comets needed to secure their first victory of the season.  Ashby managed six hits in the game with Anna Thormodson and Kalista Aamot picking up two hits each. Ashby was flawless in the field. 

In game two, the Arrows pitcher Josey Ness was great, striking out seven Comet batters as the Arrows pulled off a 4-0 victory. Ness also pitched well in the first game, allowing just two runs on one hit, while striking out five in four innings or work. Courtney Koefod delivered a triple to drive in the first run of the game in the first inning. Amelia Barry was 2-for-2 at the plate. 

"I was very encouraged today," stated Comet Coach Craig Nersten. He added, "even though we lost game 2, I thought we were competitive and came ready to play. We had some good contact but just couldn't get runners across the plate. Gus Ewan and McKenna Erickson blasted a couple of shots that could have changed the outcome of the game if left fielder Taleeyah Johnson didn't make the nice plays on them. Both teams played very well in the field and gave great effort.”  

Ashby Coach Autumn Aeling said, “We started our first game not prepared to work hard and we realized a little too late that with only having 5 innings per game every single strike and every single runner on base mattered. Luckily the second game we were much more ready and came out working hard as I saw much more aggressiveness in the box and great base running.”
