Rebels, Indians score late for split

CAMANCHE — Northeast scored twice in the bottom of the seventh inning to win the second game 8-7 and earn a split against Camanche in high school softball Thursday evening.

The Indians used a last-inning rally and won the first game 5-4 in nine innings.

“Our girls fought hard to stay close throughout and found a way,” Northeast coach Travis Eversmeyer said. “They could have rolled over and got swept, but they didn’t; they found a way.”

Addie Oberman went 4-for-4, including two doubles, with two runs batted in in the second game for Northeast, and teammates Aleenah Marcucci and Jayna Farrell had three hits apiece. Kelsey Carder had a pair of doubles with three runs batted in. Marcucci stole three bases.

Julia Moore had three hits for Camanche, and Jordan Nissen, Lindsey Grams and Maddie Parker each drove in two runs.

In the opener, Camanche and Northeast were tied at 2 after three innings, and no one scored again until the ninth. The Rebels put up two runs in the top half, but Camanche responded with three in the bottom of the inning, scoring the winning run with two outs.

Libby Schnoor and Parker each drove in runs for Camanche, and Parker and Kylie Vogel had two hits each.

Carder and Farrell had three hits each for Northeast, with Carder hitting two doubles.

Camanche opened the season Tuesday with a split against North Cedar. The Knights won the first game 8-2, but the Indians came back to win 4-0 in Game 2 as Kelsey Sexton threw a six-hit shutout with eight strikeouts.

Kylie Vogel led the offense in the win with three hits and an RBI. Sexton and Grams also had RBIs.

Mussmann took the loss in the first game, striking out five batters.

Moore and Carly Wehde had RBIs for the Indians, who had six hits. Jordan Bendixen had three hits, including a double and a home run, for the Knights.
