Softball wins two over weekend

The girls of the North Tama softball team suffered their first loss of the young season over the weekend, but also ended up with two wins on the day in a tournament at Gladbrook-Reinbeck Saturday.

The ladies fell 7-0 to a Lisbon squad that offered little in the way of easy offensive opportunities, with only one Redhawk, Sarah Howard, recording more than one hit in the contest.

A 13-0 romp over GMG stood in start contrast to the performance against Lisbon. Samantha Zobel and Whitney Pokorny each had three RBI apiece, and Howard drove in a pair. Allison Zobel also had two RBI and a triple in the game.

Emma Knoop pitched a solid game, giving up just two hits and striking out three.

The game against host Gladbrook-Reinbeck needed an extra inning to be decided, and it was North Tama that got the edge with a two-run top of the eighth.

Howard, Courtney Stuart and Anna Kvidera drove in runs for the Redhawks, and freshman Madison Howard pitched a remarkable game, allowing just two hits in her six innings of work while stiking out 10 Rebel batters.

On Monday, the ladies suffered their second loss of the season with a 12-0 defeat at the hands of a superior Don Bosco team.

The Redhawks return to action this Friday with a home game against GMG beginning at 5 p.m.
