Beulah girls take counter
By Jarann Johnson
Beulah’s girls softball team is trying to position themselves for a strong seed in the postseason. They got a little bit closer to their goal by securing a home win Friday night over Wilton-Wing 7-3.
Beulah took control of the game in the bottom of the first inning. Cassidy Nelson, a junior, hit a hard grounder to second base with two outs and a runner on third. Wilton-Wing failed to field the ball cleanly, allowing Beulah to score their first run of the game.
Kayla Gierke, a freshman, gave Beulah their next run of the game with a one-run single. Gierke’s hit put Beulah up 2-0 at the end of one inning.
Beulah fans were excited, their team had an early lead and a lot of positive momentum flowing.
Trinity Doe, Beulah senior starting pitcher, hit a rough patch in the top of the second. Wilton-Wing loaded the bases with no outs and Doe continued to struggle walking the next batter for Wilton-Wing’s first run of the game.
Beulah’s fans were hoping Doe would recover and she did so in dominant fashion. Doe struck out three consecutive batters, which preserved Beulah’s lead and confidence.
