Thu 7-10-2014

Emmetsburg scored 1 run in the first inning against Alta Aurelia Wednesday night and that would be all they need as they defeat Alta Aurelia 1 - 0 in Class 2A postseason softball.  The defense and pitching was great for both teams as hits and runs came at a premium.  Emmetsburg would get 1 run on 6 hits.  They were led by Michaela Rehm as she went 2 - 3 with the game's lone RBI scoring Sarah Simington.  Ashley Overberg was also 2 - 3 for the E'hawks.  Alta Aurelia scored 0 runs on just 3 hits.  5 out of the 7 innings Alta Aurelia would get a base runner to at least 2nd base and they were unable to score.
The winning pitcher was Ashton Connelly as she went 7 innings giving up 0 runs on 3 hits while striking out 5 and walking 1.  The losing pitcher was Taylor Rohwer going 7 innings giving up 1 run on 6 hits while striking out 10 and walking 2.  Alta Aurelia finishes their season at 20 - 6.  Emmetsburg improves to 19 - 11 and will take on Manson NW Webster Friday night in a Class 2A Region 2 semifinal in Alta at 7 PM on Y 100.
