MACA girls defeat ACGC and Montevideo

Tigers 14, ACGC 2
The Tigers made short work of it, five innings, in getting past the Falcons of ACGC on Tuesday. The offense clearly took over. We scored in each of the five innings.
Bailey Marty had three hits in three at-bats, drove in a run and scored four in this 14-2 MACA softball win. Piper Gibson was in the groove at the plate too: two-for-three, two RBIs and three runs. Whitney DeMaris went two-for-three with two ribbies and two runs. Emma Bowman had a hit and a run scored.
Karly Fehr had a hit and crossed home plate twice. Ashley Solvie had a hit and a run scored. Nicole Solvie went one-for-two with a pair of ribbies. Riley Decker had a hit in her only at-bat. Kailey Hottovy added a hit to the winning mix.
The MACA line score was 14 runs, 13 hits and a nice "zero" in errors;. The ACGC line score was 2-4-5. Maree Lee had a double and run scored for the Falcons. Rylie Wilner and Taryn Reinke also hit safely. Wilner had an RBI and Reinke had a double.
Brooke Gillespie pitched the whole way for the Tigers. She struck out four batters, walked two and allowed four hits in her five innings. Reinke and Micayla Hobson were the Falcon hurlers with Reinke getting the loss. Six of the 12 runs that Reinke allowed were unearned.
A pivotal point occurred with ACGC having the bases loaded. The score was tied. How did the Tigers put out this potential fire? With a triple play!
Tigers 9, Montevideo 8
The Morris Area Chokio Alberta bats were robust at the home diamond in a 9-8 win over Montevideo. Brooke Gillespie's bat was sizzling with four-for-four numbers including a double. Three Tigers each had a two-for-two line: Kailey Hottovy, Piper Gibson and Liz Dietz. Hottovy and Gibson each had a double.
Emma Bowman had two hits in three at-bats and delivered the decisive blow in the fifth. Bowman's single brought in the tying and go-ahead runs. Karly Fehr delivered a double. Bailey Marty went one-for-four.
Our line score was nine runs, 14 hits and two errors. Monte's line was 8-12-3.
The MACA pitching was divided among three. It was Gillespie getting the pitching win with her stint of 3 1/3 innings. She set down two batters on strikes and walked no one. Dietz picked up the save as she worked 2 2/3 innings. She fanned a batter and issued no walks. Ashley Solvie pitched for an inning, fanning two batters and walking one.
The losing pitcher was Breanna Welling. Welling made noise with her bat as she socked a home run. Cali Christianson had three hits in four at-bats. Other Thunder Hawks hitting safely were Ashley McKee, Abby Olson, Sydney Zindel, Sydni Striech, Rachel West and Jasmyn Kronback.
The fourth and fifth innings were the big ones for MACA: three runs in each. We scored one run each in the first through third innings. We're delighted that the spring sports season is underway. We're especially delighted that spring is here at all. We had a seemingly endless winter with no redeeming qualities.
