Antigo Pride topples Comets in softball action
space
In Antigo area 12U softball play, the mighty have fallen. The Antigo Pride took down the Comets 6-5 on Tuesday evening to hand the seemingly untouchable first place team its second loss of the season.

The Comets got off to its usual start, leading 5-0 after two innings. The Pride went on to score five runs straight to tie the game and scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the fifth inning with two outs.

Ellie Preboski reached base on a single and Alayna Weix drew a walk to get the two-out rally started. Kiana Lese hit an infield single that resulted in a Comets’ throwing error, allowing Preboski to score the epic winning run.

Recording the win for the Pride, Lizzy Burkhart came in as relief for Weix, pitching three innings in which she allowed one run despite no hits, walking two batters while striking out six. Weix finished her starting day on the mound having given up four runs on three hits while walking seven Comets batters to striking out just one.

Abby Robrecht started on the mound for the Comets, lasting three innings where she gave up two hits but zero runs. Riley McCann took the decision loss on the mound, however, allowing six runs on three hits with six batters walked.

The Pride’s Preboski finished 2-2 at the plate including a double, while teammates Allison Peters, KarleeMae Schultz, Lese and Weix each batted for a hit.

The Comets offensively had three hits total on the day in an uncharacteristic display of quiet bats. Brinna Mauk went 2-3 while Emma Brown recorded the Comet’s only other hit in Tuesday’s loss.

The Pride continued to impress on the road, showing its mark as a dominant and resilient team in Langlade County by coming from behind to defeat the Pickerel Reds 11-7.

The Reds were on top 4-1 after the second inning, but after a tie ballgame 7-7 at the end of the fifth, the Pride piled on four runs in the sixth inning to take the win.

Burkhart was the winning pitcher yet again, this time lasting three innings in her relief role of Peters. May Mischler of Pickerel was credited with the loss.

Pride batter Preboski shined once again, going 2-2 on the day. Hannah Husnick finished 2-3, while Anja Bussey and Peters each recorded a hit. The Reds put up four hits, including a double by Gretta Parsons.
