Hornets earn conference split
The Frazee softball team traveled to Glyndon Thursday to face the D-G-F Lady Rebels, where they came up with an HOL split.
The Lady Hornets won the first game by the score of 3-2 and lost the nightcap by the score of 12-6.
In the first game, the Lady Hornets jumped out to a lead as they picked up single runs in the fourth, sixth and seventh innings.
The fourth inning had Kari Shipman bang out a long triple and she eventually scored on a ground ball out by Sadie Stender.
In the sixth inning, the Lady Hornets extended their lead to 2-0 as Alexis Tappe worked a walk and advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Taylor Tappe.
Shipman later brought Tappe in on an RBI sacrifice fly.
In the seventh inning, the Lady Hornets picked up what proved to be a very important insurance run.
Brittney Blauert started out the inning with a base hit and stole second base, then scored on a base hit from Bayleigh Antonsen.
This gave the Hornets a 3-0 lead going into the bottom of the seventh.
The Lady Rebels picked up two runs in the bottom of the seventh, but that was all, and the Lady Hornets had a very good 3-2 win.
Emma Buhr handled the pitching duties for the Lady Hornets, as she allowed two runs on four hits, while striking out two batters and not giving up a walk.
Frazee committed one error.
Offensively, the Hornets only had three hits, but all three factored into Hornet runs.
In the second game, the Lady Rebels jumped to the early lead as they scored once in the first inning and twice in the second.
The Lady Hornets answered back in their half of the second, as Stender and Buhr each scored for the Hornets to close the score to 3-2.
The Lady Hornets eventually took a 6-3 lead as Katie Byer, Erica Ratz, Taylor Tappe and Shipman all scored in the inning. Shipman again had a big hit as she banged out another triple.
But the Lady Rebels answered with two big innings, as they scored two in the fifth and seven times in the sixth inning to take the lead, for what would prove to be the final score of 12-6.
For the game the Hornets scored six runs on six hits.
Shipman and Stender each had two hits, while Alexis Tappe and Buhr had one hit apiece.
