Cougars rally after loss to Wilton

By Suzanne Werre

The Central McLean Cougars had a strong start Saturday as they counted four runs in both the first and second innings on their way to an 11-7 defeat of Ray at the Lake Brekken Field near Turtle Lake.

That win gave the Cougars a split for the week’s action after losing to Wilton-Wing a day earlier by the score of 21-6, giving up nine runs in the last inning.

Cougar coach Kyle Hunt was happy to see his team come back strong after the loss to Wilton-Wing.

"The girls bounced back after a tough loss to Wilton-Wing," said Hunt, regarding the win over Ray.

"We did an okay job of keeping them off the base, and our defense made a few key stops," he added. "We also manufactured a few runs and took advantage of some of their mistakes."

Zoe Smalls picked up the win on the hill, while Maria Wirtz was good for a pair of RBIs and a single.
