Warriors smack Comets

ALBANY - Black Hawk hit the softball abundantly, and Albany had a tough time fielding a competitive team Friday as the Warriors won 14-0 in six innings.

Playing without two injured players, the Comets had only nine eligible players to put on the field, a few of whom were playing out of position.

"We're trying to piece it together one day at a time, but it's tough," Comets coach Connie Wunschel said. Albany committed six errors.

Black Hawk went down 1-2-3 in the first inning and only got one run across the plate, leaving the bases loaded in the second.

"It could have been a lot worse. They hit the snot out of the ball," Wunschel said.

The Warriors, riding pitcher Kayla Melland, scored four runs in both the third and fifth innings, and five in the seventh.

Melland finished with four strikeouts and zero walks on the mound and was 3-for-4 at the plate. Riley Argall had a pair of hits and four RBI for Black Hawk. Melissa and Kim Wellnitz each went 2-5 and Jordan Rupnow was 3-4.

Megan Farley had two of the Comets' five hits.

"We can't seem to hit slow pitchers. We're way ahead of everything at the plate," Wunschel said.

Marshall 17,

New Glarus 2

NEW GLARUS - The Knights struggled at both the dish and in the field. New Glarus had only two hits and committed a pair of costly errors in the five-inning loss.

Pitcher Maegan Roselein allowed 10 hits and walked 10 batters compared to just one strikeout.

Marshall scored three runs in the first, two in both the second and third, six in the fourth and four more in the fifth.
