The Highlanders take two from the Marion Center Sports

Lydia Miller of the Marion Center tied Game 1 with 3, scoring Homer in the sixth inning, but Cambria Heights ’Martina White defeated the Stingers with a home run victory in the seventh.
“This first game was a very good game between two very good teams,” Marion Center coach Ed Peterson said. “We just didn’t get the blow we needed. We had runners in second and third place but didn’t get a clutch. It’s hard. We regained the momentum, and then it was gone. I liked the way we played, we just didn’t get hit. “
Jenna Serafin nominated four in the win, and Cheyenne Sylvis – five in the defeat.

The teams kept each other without points until the end of the game.
“We had opportunities,” Peterson said. “We had runners in second and third place. We had twice loaded databases. We just couldn’t use capital letters. We did not receive these blows, and with such an opponent you should take advantage of these opportunities. “
Sidney Nichart won Game 2. Rush was defeated.
Abigail Smulik of the Marion Center had six hits a day, including a home run with two runs in the first game and a double in the second. In the second game Rausch scored a goal, and in the first he stroked two singles.
