Lady Knights End Regular Season on a Winning Note

By Vanessa McNamara

The West Central Area Knights Varsity Softball won the final game on their regular season schedule when they defeated Benson on Thursday by the score of 7-3.

WCA pulled away for good with four runs in the third inning. Brianna Kreft singled to knock in two runs, and Ireland Winter's sacrifice fly scored one run for the lady Knights.  The Knights socked one home run on the day as Madi Hansen went deep in the fourth inning. 

Hailey Bennett was the winning pitcher for the Knights. She allowed one hit and two runs over two innings, striking out three.  Brianna Kreft started the game for WCA. She went five innings, allowing one run on one hit and striking out eight. 

The Knights totaled nine hits. Bennett, Kreft, and Hansen each collected two hits apiece to lead the Knights to victory.

“Tonight was a great night to end the regular season,” said Head Coach Vanessa McNamara. “It felt good be out on a beautiful night against a double-A school and see our team fight.  Our girls will now switch into playoff mode.  We have some things to clean up on the bases and in the field and then hope to come ready to go next week.  It's amazing how fast this season went as we played 20 games in about 4 weeks! I'm so proud of all these players have done!”

The Knights will host a first round playoff game at 5:00pm Tuesday in Barrett, most likely as the top seed in the South half of Section 6A. Seeding results will be announced on Saturday.
