RPAC Softball Results as of 9/24




We are getting to the backstretch of the fall sports season. Crazy to think that the month of September is all but over. The Southern Valley/Alma Saints had five games this past week and unfortunately were unable to capture a win in any of them.


Southern Valley/Alma started the week on Monday at the Central City Triangular.





They began with a loss to Central City 9-0. In this game, the Saints found themselves down 1-0 in the bottom of the first. They were down by that one run until the home half of the fourth. Then, Central City scored eight runs to increase that lead. For the Saints, Brynn Bailey was the only one to get a hit, as she went 2-2 at the plate.


Then, the Saints lost a close one to Ord, 5-4. Halfway through the game, the Saints were down 2-1. They were able to score a run in the top half of the third inning on a Bailey sacrifice fly and Kaitlyn Bradley scored. The game was tied up at 2-2. Ord countered with their own run to lead 3-2 in the home half.





In the bottom of the 5th inning, Ord took a three-run lead with two more runs scored and it was 5-2. In the top of the seventh inning, the Saints made it interesting as Bradley hit a home run and drove in a pair of runs. But, the comeback bid fell short. Bradley was 3-4 with 2 RBIs and a home run.





On Thursday, the Saints played the Highway 6 Trailblazers and fell 9-4. It was a game in which the teams were neck-and-neck throughout the majority of it. It was 4-4 going into the sixth inning when Highway 6 took over the game with four runs in the top half of the inning and then another one in the visitor's half of the 7th. The Saints were unable to recover and dropped the game.


Bailey had another nice game as she went 1-3 with 2 RBIs. Izzy Dubbs had an RBI too.





Over the weekend, Southern Valley/Alma played at the Gothenburg Invite. First, they took on Gothenburg and lost a close one, 5-4. Jumping ahead in the game, the Saints had a 4-2 lead going into the bottom half of the fourth inning. Gothenburg, reeled off three runs to take a 5-4 lead and in the next inning, they secured the win. Mikah Schultz went 4.1 innings and had three strikeouts and four earned runs. Bradley was 3-4 with an RBI, Dubbs was 2-3 with an RBI, Bailey was 1-2 with an RBI, and Sarah Holste was 1-3 with an RBI.


In their final game of the week, Southern Valley/Alma played St. Paul. St. Paul used a steady dose of offense, and strong pitching to secure the win. They scored two runs in the first and second inning, and then six in the third. Bradley, Amy Luke, and Eden Johnson each had a hit.





Southern Valley Alma is now 7-14 and will play at Hershey on Monday, Chase County and Kearney Catholic at home Tuesday and then at Kearney Catholic on Thursday for the regular season finale.
