The Broken Bow Spirit Blue softball team was back in action Tuesday when they faced Cozad for a doubleheader.
In game one, Broken Bow could not overcome 4 runs scored by Cozad in the first inning. Bow did fight back to score 2 in the third and 1 in the fourth to make the score 4-3 but Cozad would score an insurance run in the bottom of the fourth and held on to win 5-3. Shaylee Chilewski, Nikki Peters, Avery Campbell, Taylor Fedderson, and Brianna Mowery all collected hits for the Spirit.
In game two, the Spirit outhit Cozad 4-3 but fell by a score of 4-1. Broken Bow took the lead in the top of the 2nd when Danielle Claflin drove in Nikki Peters for the first run of the game. Cozad would quickly answer with 3 runs in the bottom of the second and added one more in the 4th to secure the win. Victoria Coleman went the distance in the circle for the Spirit surrendering just 3 hits and striking out six.
The Spirit softball teams will now prepare for the “Spirit of the Sandhills” tournament which they will host in Broken Bow Friday through Sunday.
