Girls Soccer Roundup: Thompson Valley wins at Skyline


He's just trying to spread the good word about them. "Being aggressive, assertive and attacking hitters", White said.

At press time, the Falcons had yet to play a game.

The Chiefs responded with the tying run in the bottom half of the inning. The top sub-section 6 teams this year will be Pierz, Foley, St. Cloud Cathedral, Albany, Sauk Centre and Melrose, Schmidt said. "I know in the big picture, it's about funding, but in our little world, I am going to be committed to them and if they want to play baseball, we're going to play baseball".

"The past couple of years we hit a lot of at-them balls", Skinner noted. "We are all looking forward to getting started and will do our very best to try to defend out District 9 AAA title from a year ago". He was encouraged after his team's impressive 3-1 home victory over The Classical Academy, but he's not quite ready to jump up and down with soccer joy.

"It was a well-played game".

"We started off sluggish", Joplin coach Luis Percovich said. "The moral is up where it should be and they are not getting down when they hit the ball and it doesn't go for a hit". So when they all come together, coach Tim Gleason believes it creates an electric environment.

The Vikings bounced back against the Prospectors, aided by half a dozen errors by Piner. Later in the inning, a pair of bases-loaded walks gave the Saints a 9-2 lead.

"I kind of did it during football, but baseball is where I lead the best", Horton said.

McDonald finished 2-3 with a triple, walk, 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored.

Tyler Franklin and Ryan Potts both ripped two hits for the Patriots (7-6, 4-1 District 2-AAA), while JCHS got one apiece from Caleb Ballinger, Austin Edmonds, Tanner Atkins and Fladd. "Our goals are for the girls to have fun, grow as a team and give it their all".

Against the Broncos, Wildcats batters had a hard time getting clutch hits.

"(Kastran) knows what it takes and came through in some big moments for us a year ago", Magiera said. East head coach Ryan Haun said he wasn't surprised with just how good Ellison was against the Eagles.

Mandi Hettinger, who was the winning pitcher, allowed one earned run on one hit and two walks with 10 strikeouts. Friend was also successful with the bat, going 3 for 4 with two RBI. "We have to play with urgency for 80 minutes every night". "Behind those guys, we may not have a lot of experience, but these guys are solid".

Weston rebuilding at Kewanee: An assistant under Steve Osborne for Galva's Class 1A Sweet 16 squad last spring, Rob Weston is taking on his first varsity head-coaching challenge with a Kewanee softball club that lost 19 of 20 games in '17.

Ukiah starter Carter Duncan took the loss, tossing five innings and giving up five hits and two earned runs.

W: Stinson (2-0). L: Schipper (0-1). "Our pitchers fell behind on counts and we were pitching from behind all day".
