Cubs softball lose to Bulldogs

The Kimball Area softball team continued their losing ways Friday, May 10, as they journeyed to Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity high school and lost a tight one, 5-3.  The Cubs fell behind right from the get-go, surrendering three runs to the Bulldogs in the third inning. Kimball just couldn’t get things clicking, and too many base-running blunders prevented them from starting any kind of rally. Lester Prairie’s Burke picked up the win, registering 6 strikeouts, 6 walks and giving up 1 earned run. Alexis Rose took the loss for Kimball, issuing 5 strikeouts and 5 walks. She hit one batter and was responsible for 1 earned run. The Cubs’ Lauren Libbesmeier went 2 for 4 at the plate; Maddi Libbesmeier was 2 for 3; and Breane Meierhofer was 2 for 3, with 2 runs scored. The Bulldogs’ Rachel Heuer, Morgan Roush, Courtney Scoblic, and Leigh Felder had a hit apiece, and catcher Shannon Nix picked up 2 walks.
