Wolves triumph over Grizzlies

ELY— Junior Erika Mattson went the distance for the Timberwolves here last Friday as they edged North Woods 6-3 on the strength of a three-run Ely sixth inning.

Mattson gave up five hits and struck out nine to notch the win, but she had help from teammates Charly Flom, Sydni Richards and McCartney Kaercher, who each rapped two hits in the game, while Rachel Coughlin drove in two runs.

North Woods drew first blood with a run in the first inning. Ely responded with a single run in the bottom of the second and added two more in the third to take a 3-1 lead. North Woods added a single run in the fifth to close the gap before Ely put the game out of reach in the bottom of the sixth. “That gave us some breathing room,” said Ely Head Coach Tom McDonald. North Woods added a run in top of the seventh, but it was too little, too late.

Senior Allana Rutchasky took the loss for the Grizzlies, allowing six runs through six innings while striking out five.

Senior Kate Stone notched two hits and drove in a run, while fellow senior Claire Beaudry added two hits. Hanna Sandberg also drove in a run.

Following a tough stretch, the Grizzlies were 5-7 on the season as they wrap up their regular season on Friday. The Timberwolves were at 10-5 on the season as of midweek.

The loss was one of four losses on the road for the Grizzlies this week.
