Jasper answers first testMarch 29, 2014
From Herald Staff Reports
The Jasper softball team didn’t have to wait long for its first test of the season.
And the Wildcats passed with flying colors.
Down 2-1 after two innings, Jasper eked out a 6-4 win against visiting McCutcheon on Friday at the Jasper High School Softball Complex. The contest was originally scheuled for this morning, but was moved to Friday because of incoming rainy weather.
The Cats (2-0) scored the game’s first run, but gave up two scores in the second inning. Jasper knotted the score again with one run in the fourth, but fell behind 3-2 in the top of the fifth. The Cats answered quickly with three runs in the bottom of the inning — the clinching score coming when Paige Werner scampered home on a wild pitch. The teams traded runs in the sixth inning, and Jasper pitcher Jasmine Seitz (2-0) and the defense held off the Mavericks in the seventh.
Seitz surrendered seven hits with eight strikeouts in seven innings.
The Cats will host North Daviess on Tuesday.
