ND downs B-R 6-2

MONTGOMERY - The Lady Cougars scored four runs in the top of the third inning and that was enough for the victory as they went on to beat Barr-Reeve, 6-2 on Saturday.

Molly Wallace started on the mound for the Vikings and took the loss, as she gave up four runs on four hits, as the Vikings committed four errors on the day.

Elaina Kavanaugh came on in relief for the Vikings in the third inning and got out of the inning without anymore damage. Kavanaugh did give up a run in the fifth as the Cougars stretched the lead to 5-0. The Vikings cut back into the lead in the bottom of the sixth scoring a single run to cut the margin to 5-1. ND got that run back in the top of the seventh inning for a 6-1 lead. The Vikings made some noise in the bottom of the seventh adding an additional run.The Viking then loaded the bases and that brought the tying run to the plate in Jenna Knepp, but Morgan Wadsworth who was on in relief got Knepp to fly out for the final out.

ND Lora Kutch picked up the win with relief help from Wadsworth as the Cougars improved to 2-7 on the year. Wallace took the loss for the Vikings (2-5).

The Viking pitching staff walked just one batter and that batter scored, while they had struck out seven. The Cougars walked one Viking batter and she also scored and struck out two batters. Although neither team’s record looks that outstanding at this point of the season, each has played some good teams on their schedule.

The Lady Cougars had six runs on seven hits and left eight on base while committing two errors. The Vikings had two runs on six hits and left seven on base and committed four errors on the day.

Jess Miller led the Cougars going 3-4 with a double and an RBI, while Kristi Swartzentruber had two hits which one of them was a double and two RBI. Henly Dant led the Vikings with two hits and a RBI. The Vikings will back home today as they host NED in another BCC game.
