Steamers win in ninth

FULTON, Ill. — Fulton pushed across the winning run on an error with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat Riverdale 10-9 in Three Rivers Conference softball Monday at Drives Park.

Jenna James singled with one out to start the winning rally, and then she stole second base. Morgan Pannell followed with a walk, then James was thrown out at third on a fielder’s choice for the second out. A walk to Maddy Andresen loaded the bases, then Pannell scored on the right fielder’s error on a ball hit by Jenna Jones.

In the top half of the ninth, Fulton got out of a bases-loaded jam without the Rams scoring.

Ann Renkes led the Steamers’ offense. She hit a two-run double in Fulton’s four-run third inning and singled in a run in the sixth. Renkes, Jamie Huennekens and Andresen each scored a pair of runs.

Panthers improve to 7-1

PROPHETSTOWN, Ill. — Kylie Ackerman threw a three-hitter, struck out eight and won her sixth game of the season Monday as Erie/Prophetstown defeated Sterling Newman 9-1 in Three Rivers play.

The win improved the Panthers’ record to 7-1, 2-0 in the conference.

Savannah Mettler was 4-for-4 at the plate for the Panthers with a two-run home run in the fourth, a double and three RBIs. Stephanie Thulen added a double and a single, and she scored twice. Ackerman also delivered a two-run single in the third inning.

Fillies rout Oregon

MORRISON, Ill. — Lauren Pannier homered and drove in three runs and Jaeden Workman also had three runs batted in Monday as Morrison beat Oregon 11-0 in five innings in a non-conference game.
