Stevenson Bulldogs 7, Mules 6
On April 19, the Mules took the lead in the first inning and maintained it until the bulldogs pulled ahead in the sixth inning, clinching Stevenson a spot in the district tournament and eliminating the Mules in the process.
Defense got a great performance out of eighth grader Kennedy Penttila, making three spectacular catches in the outfield that all prevented runs from scoring. Breyonna Montgomery pitched a complete game and struck out four batters along the way. Offensively Montgomery, Shantelle Shervey, and Jordyn Watson all went 3-4. Picking up the RBI's were Watson with four and Montgomery and Beka Neves one each.
Naselle Comets 15, Mules 0
On April 20, the Comets showed up big offensively and never let up, securing the KM trophy for 2021. They scored 8 runs in the first inning, 2 in the second and 5 more in the third.
Coach Miller: "Naselle head coach Wirkkala and I are trying to figure out if a softball 'KM trophy' exists and if so where to locate it. It would be nice to find some history on the matchup as well. We plan on making this an annual game and will be looking to obtain a new KM trophy to pass back-and-forth between our schools (even if I have to buy it myself).
Onalaska Loggers 16, Mules 0
On April 22, Onalaska pitching showed why they are one of the best teams in the central league striking out 12 Mule hitters. Hannah Mendez, Kennedy Penttila, and Breyonna Montgomery were the only Mule batters able to get hits. Defensively Maddisen Clark made an amazing catch to hold off one potential Logger rally. Bailey McKinley, MJ Neves, and Shantelle Shervey all made solid appearances on the mound in relief.
