St. Aloysius softball team defeated Indianola Academy twice on Saturday.

”They played really hard this morning and last game,” Flashes Head Coach Savannah Buck said. We had some critical errors that costed us but once we clean those up I believe we can be as strong as anybody. I haven’t been this excited to go into district like this in all three seasons before.”

Game one:

IA was able to get the first run of the game but Macy Stauble and Kyleigh Cooper helped the Lady Flashes take a 2-1 lead with some RBIs. St. Al went up 4-1 by the end of the first after Lydia Nettles got a RBI and Maddy McSherry got a run.

The second inning was also profitable for the Lady Flashes after grabbing three runs. A single by Cooper and McSherry followed by a run from Crawley Haller would push the Lady Flashes’ lead to 7-1.

Indianola would only get one more run in the game as St. Al took the 7-2 win.

McSherry and Cooper both went perfect at the plate by going 2 for 2. Ruthie Britton, Megan Theriot, and Stauble also had a hit.

Cooper struck out three in the victory and she also had two RBIs.

Game 2:

IA came out strong in the second match against the Lady Flashes by grabbing three runs in the first inning.

Stauble, McSherry, and Luke all got RBIs early on to help the Lady Flashes take a 4-3 lead by the end of the first inning.

Cooper hit a single in the second inning that brought in the final run which led to the 5-3 win for the Lady Flashes.

Ruthie Britton went 2 for 2 at the plate while Ali G. Luke led with two RBIs and one hit. McSherry, Stauble, Cooper, and Megan Theriot also each had a hit.

Other Games:

St. Aloysius took a 6-0 loss to Washington School where Theriot went 2 for 2 at the plate and Cooper struck out seven batters.

The Lady Flashes also took a 7-1 loss to Madison St. Joe where McSherry went 3 for 3 at the plate. Cooper also struck out six.
