Same one-run fate to Vikes snips Raiders' seasonMay 23, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
For the second time this season, the Southridge softball team played North Posey to the end in a one-run ballgame.
Unfortunately for the Raiders, they suffered the same fate, losing 2-1 on Wednesday night in the semifinals of the Class 2A sectional at Bretzville.
“The girls played really well,” said Southridge coach Stephanie Fleck, whose team lost 1-0 in eight innings to North Posey earlier this month. “They played pretty hard. It just didn’t come to the outcome they wanted but the girls really fought hard all seven innings and the seniors did a great job. ... I was pretty proud of my girls.”
Southridge (10-15) broke a scoreless knot when Kassidy Mundy singled and scored on an error in the fourth inning, but North Posey countered with two runs in the fifth inning on a two-out, two-run triple from Kelsey Owen. North Posey pitcher Hailee Elderkin held the Raiders to only four hits and totaled 11 strikeouts.
Southridge’s Alli Bounds pitched three scoreless innings before Megan Stapleton and Kendyl Dearing tossed two innings each.
Mundy and Taylor Uppencamp each finished with two singles, and Stapleton and Shelby Kippenbrock also added singles for Southridge, which graduates five seniors: Bounds, Dearing, Kippenbrock, Kayley Main and Kabrea Robling.
“The seniors did a great job helping lead this team,” Fleck said. “They really set the bar high playing pretty much all four years. They helped build this program the four years I’ve been here. They’ve been a great asset to this program and (we) definitely will be missing those five seniors next year. They’re athletes and great girls; they will be missed.”
