Broken Bow Spirit 18U Softball Team Drops Tough Doubleheader to Gothenburg

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.
