Le Mars (6-12/3-3) 2, Western Christian 1

Gehlen Catholic (9-7/2-3) 10, MMC/RU 3

LE MARS — Crystal Eppling’s two-run homer in the sixth inning Monday night rallied Le Mars to a 2-1 Lakes Conference softball win over Western Christian at the Bulldog Complex.  The victory halted a four-game losing skid for the Lady Bullldogs and improved their conference mark to 3-and-3 and their season record to 6-and-12.  Brook Berkenpas got the win in the pitching circle to improve to 4-and-7, checking the hard-hitting Wolfpack to five hits and one unearned run.  Berkie walked five batters but struck out six.  Her best moment came in the top of the sixth when Western loaded the bases with no outs.  Berkenpas got a come-backer that led to a force out at the plate, a strikeout and a ground out to third baseman Christina Konz that led to an inning-ending force out at third to keep the game at 1-0.  Le Mars took the lead in the bottom of the sixth when Eppling lined a one-out drive over the left field fence for her second home run of the season and a 2-1 lead.  Berkenpas issued a two-out walk in the seventh before getting Brittany Buren to fly out to Jenn Schneider in fairly deep left field to end the game.  Buren just missed a hitting a home run an inning earlier, opening the sixth inning for the Wolfpack with a liner that hit the top rail of the center field fence but stayed in the park for a double and she was eventually forced out at the plate.  The loss was Western’s first in the league, dropping the Wolfpack into a three-way tie for first place with Spirit Lake and Estherville/Lincoln Central.

LE MARS — A seven-run second inning jump-started the offense and the Gehlen Catholic Lady Jays went on to turn back the MMC/RU Royals 10-3 in War Eagle Conference softball action Monday night in Le Mars.  Jolee Linden had a pair of triples for Gehlen and drove in four runs.  Jill Kessenich had two hits, including a double, and scored three runs while driving in one run.  Meghan Heying threw a six-hitter to earn the pitching win.  Gehlen improves to 9-and-7 for the season and 2-and-3 in the W-E-C.

STORM LAKE — Grace Milbrodt had three hits and Annie Ellis drove in three runs to lead Le Mars to a 10-3 Lakes Conference softball win at Storm Lake Wednesday night.  Storm Lake committed five errors in the game, two of which fueled a six-run fifth inning that helped Le Mars break the game open.  Ellis’ two-run single in the fifth was the key blow for the Lady Bulldogs offensively.  Brook Berkenpas scattered seven hits in another route-going pitching performance, striking out eight batters along the way.  The victory came on the heels of a 2-1 win Monday over Western Christian, marking the first back-to-back wins for Le Mars since May.  Le Mars is now 7-and-12 for the season and 4-and-3 in the Lakes Conference.
