LINCOLN CITY — Three Heritage Hills pitchers combined to one-hit Wood Memorial April 10 as the Patriots beat the Trojans 10-0 in softball.
Miriam Gordon, Mia Kiegel and Grace Keller all had time in the circle for the Patriots. Gordon earned the victory, pitching two innings and striking out three. Kiegel also pitched two innings while Keller pitched the fifth inning—allowing the Trojans’ lone hit to Audrey Strickland.
Offensively, the Patriots took control with a three-run first inning.
Heritage Hills loaded the bases on three walks before Gordon drew a walk to score Mayci Litherland. With the bases still loaded, a pitch hit Ally Schipp and Ali Gardner walked to make it 3-0.
In the third, Gordon doubled and scored two batters later when Gardner hit an RBI single to extend the advantage to four runs.
Jenna McDowell and Litherland hit back-to-back singles leading off the fourth. Emma Day’s one-out RBI double brought McDowell home and gave Heritage Hills a 5-0 edge. Kiegel’s RBI ground out added another run before Gordon hit a two-run home run to give the Patriots an eight-run lead. Gardner also added an RBI triple.
In the fifth, Addyson Lindsey ended the game with the mercy rule after hitting an RBI single to score Haley Fisher.
Lucy Schwomeyer took the loss for Wood Memorial after surrendering three earned runs on five walks. She recorded two outs before being relieved in the circle by Kenzie Brogan, who pitched the final 3 2/3 innings and allowed seven runs—six earned—on eight hits and a walk.
At the plate, Gordon went 2-for-2 with two runs and three RBIs while Gardner finished 2-for-2 with three RBIs.
Strickland was 1-for-2 in the loss for Wood Memorial.
