Le Mars (12-19/7-7) 10, Storm Lake 7

LE MARS — Le Mars closed out their 2016 regular season Tuesday night with a 10-7 victory over Storm Lake in Lakes Conference softball action at the Bulldog Complex.  The win halted a three-game losing streak and improved the Lady Bulldogs record to 12-and-19 for the season and 7-and-7 in the Lakes Conference.  It took a seven-run sixth inning to erase a 5-3 deficit and avoid an upset at the hands of the leagues last place team.  Le Mars took advantage of two errors and a bases loaded walk, a sacrifice fly by Grace Milbrodt and RBI hits from Kalin Hardyk and Crystal Eppling to plate seven runs in a nine-batter sixth inning.  Storm Lake answered with two more runs in the seventh and had the bases loaded when the game ended.  Kalin Hardyk had three of the six Le Mars hits and Crystal Eppling had two hits and two RBI’s.  Brook Berkenpas pitched a complete game for Le Mars, giving up six hits, walking five and striking out eight to earn the win.  The Lady Bulldogs host Spencer in their 4A Regional Tournament opener Thursday at the Bulldog Complex.  Game time is at 7 p.m. with coverage on KLEM beginning at 6:50.

LE MARS — Remsen St. Mary’s pulled off a tournament surprise on the opening night of 1A Regional play Tuesday night, beating the favored Gehlen Catholic Lady Jays 9-0 at the Riverview Complex.  Haley Delperdang fired a three-hit shutout at the Jays to improve to 7-and-16 for the season.  Shelby Schroeder and Paige Willman had three hits each for the Lady Hawks with Willman driving in a pair of runs.  Schroeder came into the game hitting just .173 for the season before driving in the first run of the game with a double in the second inning and then adding singles in the fourth and fifth innings.  St. Mary’s extended a 2-0 lead to 5-0 with three runs in the fourth on RBI’s by Mallory Behrens, Paige Willman and Catherine Russell.  The Hawks then put the game out of reach with a four-run fifth inning, three coming on No. 9 hitter Kaylee Galles’s bases-loaded triple.  Galles brought a .163 batting average into the game.  Sydney Livermore had two of Gehlen’s three hits.  Remsen St. Mary’s, who went 5-and-13 over the final 18 games of the regular season including two losses to Gehlen, takes a 10-and-22 record to Moville Wednesday night for a quarterfinal game against Woodbury Central.  Gehlen Catholic, which had won seven of their final nine games in the final two weeks of the regular season, closes out a 17-and-13 campaign.  Nine seniors finished their high school careers Tuesday night for Gehlen.

LE MARS — Le Mars opened post season play with an 11-4 win over Spencer Thursday night to advance to Saturday’s semifinals against No. 13 Bishop Heelan.  After splitting their two regular season games with Spencer, both being decided in the seventh inning, Le Mars ended the drama early in Thursday’s game, scoring ten runs in a 16-batter second inning.  Grace Milbrodt and Crystal Eppling had two-run doubles to key the second inning eruption.  Spencer helped out with four errors in the inning.  The Tigers had a glimmer of hope after scoring three runs in the fourth to close to within 10-4.  But Le Mars added another unearned run in the fifth on yet another Spencer error to secure a seven-run lead and the Tigers never threatened again.  Brook Berkenpas scattered seven hits with two walks and five strikeouts for Le Mars to improve to 10-and-13 in the pitching circle.  Le Mars improves to 13-and-19 heading into Saturday’s match-up with 24-and-10 Bishop Heelan at 7 p.m. at the Bulldog Complex.  The game will be carried on KLEM starting at 6:50.

LE MARS — Home runs by Lexi Stolen and Alex Hope keyed an 11-run, 16-batter fourth inning that broke up a 2-1 game and sent No. 13 Bishop Heelan to a 13-1 victory at Le Mars Saturday night in the semifinals of the 4A Regional softball tournament.  Ellie Cropley had a pair of hits and three RBI’s in the fourth.  Her two-run single extended the lead to 4-1 and two batters later Stolen unloaded her sixth home run of the season, a three-run towering fly that just cleared the left field wall for a 7-1 advantage.  Hope drove a two-run homer out of the yard two batters after Stolen’s shot to end freshman Brook Berkenpas’ night in the pitching circle.  Kali Berkenpas took over in relief and got a ground out for the second out of the inning before the next seven batters reached base with Aubrey Wolf’s single to left field ending the game on the ‘Mercy Rule’.  Christina Konz had two of the four Le Mars hits.  Annie Ellis drove in the lone run for the Lady Bulldogs with a bunt single in the second inning.  Lexi Ricke earned the win for the Crusaders who improve to 25-and-10 for the season.  Le Mars ends the year with a 13-and-20 record.  Bishop Heelan advances to the Regional championship game Tuesday in Adel against No. 3 A-D-M (31-5) for a trip to Fort Dodge.
