(high school softball)

(#9-3A)Sergeant Bluff-Luton 3, Gehlen Catholic 0

Emmetsburg 6, Le Mars 3

(SERGEANT BLUFF)  -- Ashtin Hazel's two-run triple in the sixth inning broke up a 1-0 pitcher's duel between S-B-L's Abby Kolar and Gehlen's Emily Meyer and No. 9 (3A) Sergeant Bluff-Luton shutout Gehlen Catholic 3-0 at Sergeant Bluff Monday night in summer softball action between two former War Eagle Conference rivals.  Kolar finished with a four-hitter with one walk and three strikeouts.  Meyer gave up just six hits with two walks and one strikeout.  Kennedy Colvert drove in the first Warrior run with a third inning double.  Jill Kessenich had two hits for Gehlen Catholic.  The Lady Jays fall to 12-and-13 with the loss.

(EMMETSBURG)  -- Emmetsburg took advantage of four Le Mars errors and a wild pitch to score four unearned runs enroute to a 6-3 upset win over the league-leading Lady Bulldogs Monday night in a Lakes Conference encounter at Emmetsburg.  The Lady E-Hawks built a 4-0 lead before Le Mars tried to rally late.  Janessa Milbrodt's two-run triple cut the lead to 4-2 in the fifth.  Two errors in the sixth, however, led to two more Emmetsburg runs and a 6-2 lead going into the seventh.  Madison Heidebrink singled home one run in the seventh inning to cut the deficit to 6-3 and Le Mars had runners on second and third and one of their top sluggers at the plate in Kassidy Rieken.  E-Hawk pitcher Ashton Connelly escaped the threat by getting Rieken to foul out to third to end the game.  Rieken and Heidebrink had two hits each to pace the Le Mars offense.  Janessa Milbrodt, who no-hit Emmetsburg June 10th in an 8-0 win in Le Mars, took the loss.  She gave up seven hits, walked one and struck out six.  Connelly finished with a six-hitter with nine strike outs.  The Lakes Conference loss was the first in two summers for the defending league champs and drops Le Mars into a first place tie with Spirit Lake at 5-and-1.  Le Mars takes a 14-and-8 record to Spirit Lake Wednesday for a varsity doubleheader.

Emmetsburg 8, Le Mars 6

(#3-1A)Gehlen Catholic 7 Lawton-Bronson 5

(EMMETSBURG)  -- Emmetsburg used a three-run homer by Zach Anderson in the first inning to open up an early 6-0 lead and then held off Le Mars to win 8-6 in a Lakes Conference baseball match-up at Emmetsburg Monday.  A late charge by the Bulldogs came up a little short.  Colan Borchers drove in a pair of runs in the sixth with a bases-loaded single to narrow the deficit to 8-5.  Another run scored on a ground out in the seventh and Le Mars had two runners on base with no outs when the E-Hawks pulled off a little defensive magic.  They picked a runner off third base and then ended the game with a double play, catching a fly ball in left field and cutting down a Bulldog runner at the plate attempting to tag up and score.  Le Mars was checked to just six hits with Dayton Rand and Keaton Candor collecting two hits each.  Alex Bell made his varsity debut on the mound for the Bulldogs, working the first two innings and taking the loss.  Caleb Cline pitched the final four innings for the Dogs.  Le Mars falls to 6-and-8 for the season and 4-and-2 in the conference.  Le Mars plays at Estherville/Lincoln Central Tuesday night in a make-up game.

(LAWTON)  -- No. 3 (1A) Gehlen Catholic rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh inning to pull out a 7-5 victory over Lawton-Bronson Monday night in a non-conference baseball match-up of two of the better 1A teams in northwest Iowa.  The Jays trailed 5-4 going into their final at-bat when Ty Kurth tied the game with a RBI double and Jarod Steffes put the Jays in front with a sacrifice fly.  Blake Wiltgen scored on a passed ball for some added insurance.  Jarod Steffes then set the Eagles down in order in the bottom of the seventh to earn the win in relief of starter Brady Heying.  Gehlen has now won ten in a row and improved their record to 15-and-1 heading into a Wednesday War Eagle Conference game at West Sioux.

Gehlen Catholic 4, (#10-1A)Remsen St. Mary's 3

(LE MARS)  -- Gehlen Catholic rallied for four runs in their final two at-bats to erase a 3-0 deficit and stun No. 10 (1A) Remsen St. Mary's 4-3 in War Eagle Conference softball at the Riverview Complex Tuesday night.  Alexis Bunkers put the Hawks in front 3-0 with a RBI double in the first and a two-run homer in the third.  Gehlen pulled within 3-2 in the fifth inning with a RBI single by Emily Pratt and another run scored on a error.  The Lady Jays took the lead with two more runs in the sixth on a RBI double by Melissa Schmit and another throwing error allowed the go ahead run to score.  Although Gehlen committed five errors they also made two game-changing defensive plays.  They escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the second inning thanks to a 1-2-3 inning-ending double play.  Then in the top of the sixth the Lady Jays gunned down a runner at the plate to end the inning.  Meghen Heying earned the pitching win despite giving up ten hits.  She had no walks and three strikeouts.  Morgan Cronin threw a five-hitter for the Hawks but walked three, hit a batter and struck out two.  Gehlen Catholic improves to 13-and-13 for the season and 8-and-6 in the War Eagle Conference.  Remsen St. Mary's drops to 15-and-7 and 11-and-2 in league play.  The two have a re-match Saturday in a make-up game at Remsen.

(high school baseball)

Le Mars 7, Estherville/Lincoln Central 6

(ESTHERVILLE) -- Matt Ellefson completed a comeback from a 5-2 deficit with a tie-breaking, RBI double in the seventh inning to lift Le Mars to a 7-6 Lakes Conference baseball victory at Estherville/Lincoln Central Tuesday night.  Le Mars tied the game in the sixth with a run.  Colan Borchers came on in relief of Dayton Rand to record a save, getting the final out of the game on a strike out to halt a seventh inning threat by the Midgets.  Payton Pick started for Le Mars and worked the first 1 2/3 with Dayton Rand working five innings of relief, allowing just two hits with three walks and five strike outs.  Rand was credited with the win.  Matt Ellefson led a ten-hit attack for the Bulldogs with three hits and two RBI's and Keaton Candor had two hits and two RBI's.  Le Mars snaps a three-game losing streak with the win and improves to 7-and-8 for the season and 5-and-2 in league play.
