Late inning heroics helped Gothenburg claim two wins over the Broken Bow Spirit 18U softball team Thursday.
Game one went five innings. The Spirit jumped out early taking a 2-0 lead after the first inning but Gothenburg came back with 2 runs in the third to tie the game. The score would remain that way until the fifth. In the fifth, Gothenburg erupted for 6 runs and went on to win by a final of 8-2. Bow collected 6 hits in the game with Kyla Phillips going 2 for 2 to lead the way.
Game two went four innings and included more late inning drama. The Spirit once again jumped out early scoring 4 runs in the first inning and would build the lead to 9-4 going to the bottom of the fourth. But again Gothenburg would produce some final inning magic scoring 6 runs in the fourth as they walked off with a 10-9 win. Bow pounded out 12 hits in the game with Majesta Valasek going 3 for 3 to help lead the way.
The Spirit are now 1-2 on the season.
