Gehlen Catholic (7-11/5-3) 12, Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn 0, three innings

GRANVILLE — Gehlen Catholic looked like a team trying to beat an incoming storm Monday night as the Lady Jays took a little less than an hour to score a 12-0, three-inning ‘Mercy Rule’ victory over Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn in War Eagle Conference softball at the Granville city park.  Gehlen struck for five runs in the first inning while sending ten batters to the plate.  The Lady Jays scored five more runs in the second inning as they batted around.  The game ended three batters into the third inning when Katie Peters delivered a two-run single.  Sydney Livermore belted her second home run of the season, a two-run shot in the first inning and later added a single and an intentional walk.  Addison Weber had two hits and a walk and scored three times.  Kennedy Heying drove in a pair of runs with a double and a sacrifice fly.  Brooke Woerdehoff allowed one base runner on a first inning, two-out single by Maddie Bronstad.  Woerdehoff struck out four.  Gehlen Catholic improves to 7-and-11 for the season and 5-and-3 in the W-E-C.

SPIRIT LAKE — Payton Ahrenstorff fell a double shy of hitting for the cycle and drove in six runs to lead (#14-3A) Spirit Lake to a 12-2, six inning victory over Le Mars in Lakes Conference softball action at Spirit Lake Tuesday night.  Brooke Harrington’s two-run single erased a 1-0 Le Mars lead in the second inning and two batters later, Ahrenstorff unloaded a grand slam to cap a six-run inning.  Hannah Poolman homered to open the third inning and Emily Alger drove in another run with a ground ball.  In the fourth Ahrenstorff struck again, tripling home a run and then scoring on a wild pitch.  Ahrenstorff added a RBI-single in the sixth and scored the final run on a double by Kelsey Kannnenberg to end the game on the ‘Ten Run Rule’.  Le Mars took a 1-0 lead with a RBI-single by Katelyn Raymond in the second inning.  The other Le Mars run scored on an error.  Kannenberg retired the final eight batters of the game, tossing a five-hitter.  Kady Leusink had two hits for the Lady Bulldogs.  Brook Berkenpas took the loss.  Le Mars falls to 8-and-9 as they saw their four-game winning streak end.  The Lady Bulldogs are 1-and-5 in league play.
