STORM LAKE – Defense has been the Achilles heel of the Estherville Lincoln Central softball team at times this season. Fortunately for the Midgettes, there isn’t much defense to be played when pitcher Kendall Bosch steps inside the circle.

The sophomore fanned eight batters in Wednesday night’s 2-1 victory over the Tornadoes and allowed just five hits. However the ELC defense committed three errors, including one in the sixth inning that turned into Storm Lake’s lone run of the contest.

“We need to do a little better job of getting in front of the ball and making plays,” ELC coach Megan Anderson said. “But I told the girls after the game that winning by a run shows just how mentally tough they are to stay focused on the game and finish it off.”

With the tying and winning runs on second and third base in the bottom of the seventh inning, ELC got a big strikeout from Bosch and the defense got the other two outs to shut the Tornado rally down.

ELC totaled just three hits on the night, but each one was crucial.

Ashley Weston was 1-3 with an RBI, while Bosch was 1-3 with a run scored and Emily Kirchner was 1-2.

ELC (5-2, 4-0) returns to action tonight as they host Spencer.

In JV action, the Midgettes won 17-1.

Allie Sievert was 3-5 with five RBIs, Kenzie Burns was 3-3 with four runs scored and Tessa Burnholtz was 3-3 including a double and two triples. She also scored four runs and had three RBIs.

Melissa Gjerde picked up the win for ELC. She pitched three innings, struck out three batters and allowed two hits.
