Lady Lakers split games with Goodman/Pembine on Tuesday|
A Northern Lakes Conference doubleheader Tuesday between White Lake and Goodman-Pembine saw the young ladies split the afternoon series with a win each. Traveling to Goodman-Pembine for the game, the Lakers took the first game 4-1. The hosts got their vengeance, however, as the Patriots took the second matchup 7-1.
Elizabeth Schultz pitched both games, and her coach, Ellie Kanke, was satisfied with her back-to-back play.
“Schultz fought hard on the mound,” she said. “She threw a lot of pitches and stayed consistent throughout both games.”
In the first outing, White Lake took a 2-0 lead in the second inning off of runs from Angel Budd and Cassey Deisinger. Both girls reached base by walks.
A Patriot run in the bottom of the third brought the hosts to within one of the Lakers. A Goodman-Pembine batter (Keeley) reached base after being hit from a Schultz’s pitch, and eventually scored from an RBI by Stankevid.
Julia Boyd scored a run in the fourth after hitting for a double. Desinger received the run batted in with a base-clearing double.
Monica Marsh, substituting for Paige Clay, scored the game’s final run in the top of the final fifth. Taking a walk, an RBI from Dani Peters secured Monica’s score for the 4-1 win.
Schultz pitched well in her first game. She claimed one strikeout but allowed just one run off of just two hits. She also walked just one batter and hit another by pitch.
In game two of the doubleheader, the young White Lake women did not perform quite as well. While Sam Wickersheim scored the first run of the game for the Lakers in the top of the first off a pitcher error, it would be the only offense of the game for the visitors.
Taking the lead with two scores in the bottom of the first, the Patriots dominated for the rest of the game. A three-run, second inning all but put it away for Goodman-Pembine.
Solitary runs in the fourth and fifth pushed the score to 7-1 in favor of the Patriots. The Lakers did not have an offensive answer.
Schultz, pitching her second game of the afternoon, finished game two allowing five hits and seven runs. She walked seven batters and struck out just one.
Coach Kanke said, after the two-game stretch, “Our defense was phenomenal (in game one). We kept our head in the game and made some great plays and only gave up one run. (Overall), we are seeing a lot of improvement in our mental game which has increased our confidence.”
