Rebels avoid a sweep

GOOSE LAKE — When Sydney Grell’s home run gave Camanche its second three-run inning of the day Monday, the Indians got their hopes up for a sweep of their Big East Conference softball doubleheader at Northeast.

The Rebels feared the same thing. They were determined not to let it happen.

Northeast responded with single runs in the sixth and seventh innings to pull out a 6-4 victory and earn a split after Camanche won the opener 3-1.

“We had to bounce back really well, and we did,” said Northeast right fielder Addie Oberman, who scored the go-ahead run. “The homer put us down a bit, but once we got batting again, we got new life. ... We got our heads up better and were able to fight through.”

Northeast coach Travis Eversmeyer said: “I thought we made a couple of good plays after the home run. I’m happy we didn’t drop our heads. The girls bounced back.”

Grell appeared to hit a game changer when she followed an infield single by Jordan Nissen and a walk to Libby Schnoor by driving a pitch over the right-field wall with none out in the bottom of the fourth inning. The three-run shot pulled the Indians even at 4-4.

“It made me happy to finally get a hit,” Grell said. “It wouldn’t have tied the game, though, if my two teammates weren’t on. I knew it would be close (when it left her bat). It’s my first one ever.”

Northeast pitcher Maddison Daniels settled down after the blast and retired 12 of the final 13 batters she faced, allowing only a walk to Grell in the sixth inning.

Daniels’ teammates took care of the rest on offense.

Oberman drilled a one-out double to right field in the top of the sixth, was sacrificed to third and scored on a wild pitch to put the Rebels ahead 5-4.
