The Holy Cross Lady Indians flashed some elather to keep the Lady 'Stangs from scoring a lot more runs on Thursday at Softball City. The end result was a relatively easy Brossart win 6-1 but some soild defense by Holy Cross left 13 runners on base for the 'Stangs.
Senior Alicia Miller was stellar on the mound again tossing a 4 hitting and allowing just one unearned run in the fifth while striking out 11 batters on a cold day in Latonia.
Brossart scored first with two runs in the second as Lindsay Griffith and Miller reached on errors and then Griffith and pinch runner Jaimie Reis scored on hits by Maria Greis and Gretchen Trumbo. They added a third run in the third inning when Griffith singled and scored on a laser triple by Miller. They added two more insurance runs in the seventh when Greis singled in Griffith and Reis scored on a Trumbo sacrifice. Trumbo wound up with two rbis.
Molly Williams, Miller, Greis, and Allie Anstead all had two hits each to pace Brossart.
In a two hour and 45 minute junior varsity game the Lady 'Stangs held on for an 18-13 win led by Erica Riedeman's two hits and capitalizing on 14 bases on balls by the Holy Cross pitching staff, a hit batter and 9 errors.
The Lady 'Stangs now head south for Johnson Central's Battle by the Creek Tourney and a week of games in Jacksonville, Florida
