Pride defeats Bandits 5-4 in championship
space
An Antigo Pride team that proved itself the squad to beat for the latter half of the area’s 12U softball season rewarded themselves with a championship July 21 evening, beating the rival Bandits, 5-4 at Saratoga Park.

The Pride scored one run in the first inning thanks to a Hannah Husnick single that would eventually allow her to reach home from a Lizzy Burkhart double.

The Bandits bounced back with one run in the second inning as the result of walks to Bandit batters Elyse Incha, Taylor Arrowood, and Kendall Marmes. Later, a pass ball would allow the Bandits to get on the scoreboard and tie the game.

After the Bandits’ pitching staff allowed themselves to get into trouble with two hit batters and two walks, the Pride were able to score two more runs in the third.

Later, in the fifth inning, Ellie Preboski would lead off with a single followed by an Anja Busse walk. A pass ball and a single by Kiana Lese would garner two more scores for the Pride, sealing their fate as 12U champions.

Burkhart led the victorious, season-ending contest with a 2-3 hitting performance that included a double. Husnick was perfect at 2-2, while teammates Lese, Preboski, and Lightfoot would all contribute a hit.  

The Bandits only hit on the day was a single by Lily Nicholson. Winning pride pitcher Alayna Weix made sure of it, giving up just two runs on the single hit while striking out three batters and walking as many. Burkhart saw two innings of relief work, allowing zero hits and recording two strikeouts and three walks.

Bandits’ pitcher Emily Brettingen received the loss on the day, pitching three innings that saw her give up three runs on four hits while striking out two Pride batters and walking just one. Alicia Turunen provided three innings of relief, giving up the final two runs on three hits while also striking out an impressive seven batters. The two Bandit ladies combine for three hit batters.
