Rebels rock West Branch

WEST BRANCH — Northeast pitcher Addie Oberman allowed just one hit and got plenty of offensive support as the Rebels thumped West Branch 13-0 on Monday in a River Valley Conference softball game stopped after three innings because of the 12-run rule.

Taylor Jones had the lone hit for the Bears (0-5), a single. Oberman struck out two batters and didn’t issue a walk.

Northeast (5-2) wasted no time getting its offense going, scoring three runs in the first inning.

Rylee Dickey led off with a walk, took second on a passed ball and went to third on Aleenah Marcucci’s bunt single. After Marcucci stole second, Kelsey Carder delivered a sacrifice fly for the first run. Baylie Parson followed with a run-scoring single, and she scored later in the inning when Bailey Claussen walked with the bases loaded.

The Rebels broke it open with a 10-run third inning that included a bases-loaded, three-run double by Claussen, an RBI single by Dickey and a two-run single by Carder. Oberman added another two-run single two batters later, and Northeast made it 13-0 when Tierra Hildebrandt walked with the bases loaded.

Indians edged

CAMANCHE — Durant-Bennett scored twice in the top of the sixth inning to pull out a 2-1 River Valley Conference win against Camanche on Monday.

The Indians scored their run in the first inning but couldn’t hold the lead.

Maquoketa swept

MANCHESTER — West Delaware swept a WaMaC Conference doubleheader from Maquoketa on Monday, winning 2-0 and 8-4.

Hannah Cole pitched a four-hit shutout in the opener, striking out nine batters and walking just one. Ashley Heims and Marly Boies drove in the runs for the Hawks, who had just six hits.

West Delaware jumped ahead 5-0 in the first inning of Game 2. Boies had a big game, going 4-for-4 with three doubles and three runs batted in. Haley Morrison and Kristen Wegmann also drove in two runs apiece.
