Errors plague West Carroll

Forreston scores 8 unearned runs

THOMSON, Ill. — Forreston took advantage of 11 West Carroll errors and beat the Thunder 18-8 in high school softball Wednesday.

In winning its season opener, Forreston scored eight unearned runs and built a 10-0 lead. The game was called after six innings because of the 10-run rule.

Setting the tone, the Cardinals scored their lone run in the first inning when Alina Llanas led off the game by reaching on an error and scored on a two-out error.

Forreston scored five more in the second inning. The first three batters reached on singles, with the third one, by Hannah Metzger, driving in two runs. Winning pitcher Ashley Long added an RBI single later in the inning. She finished the day 3-for-5 with four runs batted in.

The Thunder (1-3) did manage to cut in to Forreston's lead each time it reached double digits.

They scored three times in the bottom of the third to pull within 10-3. After Forreston scored five in the top of the fourth, West Carroll answered with three more.

Forreston increased its lead to 17-6 in the top of the fifth, only to see West Carroll come back with two more in the bottom half.

Allison Thulen led West Carroll with three hits and four RBIs.
