GSL goes 1-2 in opening week
After nearly winning its season opener before falling in extra innings, the Glencoe-Silver Lake softball team did claim a pair of one-run wins to open this week with a 2-1 overall record.
The Panthers rallied from a 2-0 second-inning deficit against visiting Watertown-Mayer in the season opener on Tuesday, April 11, taking a 4-2 lead in the middle frames. However, the Royals rallied and sent the game into an added stanza, where they clinched the win over their hosts.
Molli Cacka knocked in two runs for GSL, with Lexi Hansch, Morgan Mathews and Brianna Wraspir each logging one RBI apiece in the loss. Mathews, Sam Voigt, Kasidy Cacka, Kaitlyn Uecker and Kylie Ness each scored one run each.
GSL rebounded well from the defeat, winning 5-4 against Litchfield on Thursday, April 13, and 2-1 against Sibley East on Monday, April 17.
The Panthers and Dragons were tied 2-2 after one inning and 4-4 after the fourth before Molli Cacka drove in Hansch the winning run on an infield grounder in the fifth inning. Wraspir, who earned her first pitching win of the season, helped her own cause with three RBI in the contest.
