Bishop Brossart and Newport, despite being NKAC Division II members, had not met on the softball field since 2012 when the Lady 'Stangs defeated the Lady Cats 6-1 when Katlyn Hoeh and Karlie Shackelford were freshmen. Today the Lady 'Stangs defeated Newport 14-2 in five innings at Alexandria City Field. Senior Hoeh was on the mound for the Lady Cats still but with Shackelford ill today sophomore Megan Seiter scattered 4 hits over five innings with no walks and 6 strikeouts to raise Brossart's season record to 16-11 while Newport falls to 4-4. That kept the Lady 'Stangs slow pitch and fast pitch record perfect against Newport dating back to 1980.
Newport scored first when Kylie Orr's grounder down the first base line plated two and suddenly the Lady cats were up 2-0.
Brossart got two back in the first when Amanda Graus and Amanda Lloyd singled and then Graus scored on a single by Jordyn Boesch to left. They left two runners on base.
Newport would only manage two singles the next four innings while plated 7 in the second and 6 more in the fourth.
Brossart scored 14 runs on 16 hits lead by three hits each by Lloyd and Boesch. Kaitlyn Seiter knocked in three runs and Graus, Megan Seiter and Macy Griffin each had two hits to pace Brossart. Griffin tripled in the fourth.
The Lady 'Stangs host Lloyd in an NKAC game tomorrow at home and then travel to scenic Bracken County on Friday to battle the Polar Bears.
