HLP Softball Advances In 1A Postseason

Tue 7-8-2014

Harris-Lake Park endured a 10 minute rain delay and took advantage of nine Trinity Christian errors en route to a 9-3 win in Class 1A Region 1 softball play on Monday night.  The Wolves took a five run lead off five Tiger errors in the second and then gave a run back on an error in the bottom of the inning to lead 5-1 when a rain delay stopped play midway through the third.  Following the break, Trinity Christian would get eight hits, but only bring in a pair of runs while H-LP used a couple hits and more Trinity errors to plate four more runs of their own.
Macy Gunderson got the win on the mound.  She pitched all seven innings, giving up three runs (one earned) on nine hits.  She struck out seven and walked one.  Offensively, Katherin Ihnen went 1-for-2 with a run.  She also reached on two walks and an error.  Zayda Elbuytari was 1-for-4 with a run and 2 RBI.  Gunderson was 1-for-2 with a walk, a run scored, and a RBI.  H-LP is 13-18 and moves on to face LeMars Gehlen Catholic on Wednesday in LeMars.  You can hear the broadcast on KUOO.
Kayla Kooima took the loss on the mound.  She gave up all nine runs (four earned) on five hits.  She struck out seven and walked eight.  Shania Kooiker was 2-for-3 with a run scored for the Tigers.  Trinity Christian finishes at 3-21.
