North Woods softball slips to MI-B

Posted

MT. IRON- The home team had the hot bats on a chilly, rainy Friday afternoon in Mt. Iron as the North Woods Grizzlies softball team took a 13-2 loss.
The Rangers honed in on Ivy Chauklin’s pitches early, scoring five runs in the first inning. After the Rangers loaded the bases in the second, Evelyn Brodeen came on in relief, but the Grizzlies gave up three more runs before getting out of the inning.
North Woods found a spark of offense in the top of the third, with Brynn Simpson scoring on a Hannah Cheney double. Cheney’s blast advanced Brodeen to third base, and Brodeen stole home for the only other run.
But another five-run inning by the Rangers took the wind out of the Grizzlies’ sails and accounted for the 13-2 final score.
MIB batters kept the Grizzlies’ pitchers busy, as Chaulklin and Brodeen threw a combined 110 pitches while collecting seven strikeouts. Cheney went 3-for-3 at the plate to lead North Woods hitters.
