Remsen St. Mary's 12 Gehlen Catholic (7-5/3-3) 0, 4 innings

(REMSEN) -- Paige Harpenau had three hits and drove in four runs to pace a 16-hit attack for Remsen St. Mary's to lead the Hawks to a 12-0, four-inning bashing of Gehlen Catholic in War Eagle Conference softball play in Remsen Monday night.   Harpenau ended the game with two outs in the bottom of the fourth with a bases-loaded single to left-center that plated the twelfth run in a 12-run rule verdict.  Alexis Bunkers had three hits and three RBI's for the Hawks and Lyndsie Shorg added three hits and a RBI.  R-S-M scored seven runs in a 12-batter third inning when they collected seven hits.  Miranda Staab allowed only two base runners for the night, a fourth inning bunt single by Steph Rohe and a walk to Lisa Gunter.  The win was the Hawks eighth straight over Gehlen over the last three seasons.  Remsen St. Mary's improves to 9-and-3 for the season and 4-and-1 in the W-E-C while Gehlen falls to 7-and-5 for the season and 3-and-3 in league play.



Le Mars (5-0/2-0) 7 Emmetsburg 3

(LE MARS) -- Austin Sitzmann and Parker Rolfes combined on a five-hitter and were backed by a nine-hit attack as the defending Lakes Conference champion Le Mars Bulldogs remained unbeaten at 5-and-0 with a 7-3 victory over Emmetsburg Monday night at the Bulldog Complex.  The win improves the Bulldogs conference mark to 2-and-0.  Jacob Lemoreaux had two hits and two RBI's for Le Mars and Hunter Rowe added a pair of hits and one RBI.  Sitzmann and Rolfes combined to strike out nine E-Hawk hitters.

Gehlen Catholic (1-7/1-5) 7 Remsen St. Mary's 4

(REMSEN) -- The stars seemed to be aligned Monday night ... or was it the full moon hanging over the Remsen ball diamond.  Whatever the case, Gehlen Catholic finally put it all together to pick up their first win of the season, 7-4 over Remsen St. Mary's in War Eagle Conference baseball play.  The Jays made all the plays defensively, and at times even in spectacular fashion.  Eric Oetken, whom coach Marty Kurth referred to as sneaky fast to the media after the game, scattered nine hits and survived a four walk second inning to check the Hawks to three runs that closed a 5-1 Gehlen lead to 5-4.  Oetken's sacrifice fly in the third inning extended the lead to 6-4 and a passed ball in the fifth made it 7-4.  A two-out error in the top of the first inning opened the door to a four-run inning for Gehlen.  A RBI single by Mitchell Flack, a two-run double by Angel Chagolla followed by a RBI single by Oetken made the Hawks pay dearly for the defensive miscue.  Hawks' head coach Dean Harpenau said after the game that the first inning error was the decisive moment of the game.  Losing pitcher Beau Pick gave up eight hits and struck out seven while walking just one.  Blake Wiltgen had three hits for the Jays and Mitchell Flack had two.  The Jays improve to 1-and-7 for the season and 1-and-5 in the W-E-C while St. Mary's falls to 7-and-3 for the season and 2-and-2 in the War Eagle Conference.
