Gehlen Catholic (17-9/8-3) 16, Trinity Christian 4, three innings

LE MARS — The Gehlen Catholic girls closed out their 2019 regular season with a 16-4, three inning victory over Trinity Christian Friday night in War Eagle Conference softball at the Riverview Complex.  The game made up a May 31st postponement.  The Lady Jays scored 12 runs in the second inning to turn the game into a rout early.  Addison Weber, Alyssa Kolbeck and Sydney Livermore drove in three runs each.  Anna Britt and Alyssa Kolbeck had three hits each to pace a 16-hit attack.  Rylee Schnepf fired a two-hitter with six strikeouts and five walks.  Emily Kellen got the final out.  Gehlen finishes War Eagle Conference play with an 8-and-3 record and will take a 17-and-9 mark into their Regional opener Monday night against Whiting in Remsen.  You can hear the game on KLEM starting at 5:20.

Trinity Christian 4, Gehlen Catholic (5-15/2-7) 2

LE MARS — Trinity Christian topped Gehlen Catholic 4-2 Friday night to complete War Eagle Conference baseball play for 2019.  The game was a make-up from a May 31st postponement and was also a preview of the tournament opening pairing between the Jays and Tigers on July 13th at Akron.  Ethan Peters pitched effectively for 4 2/3 innings for Gehlen before the Tigers figured him out on the third trip through the batting order.  Six different Jays had at least one hit each but the timely run-producing hits just didn’t come when Gehlen needed them.  The Jays finish War Eagle Conference play with a 2-and-7 record and drop to 5-and-15 for the summer with one regular season game to play.
