MOUNDRIDGE — Four-time defending state champion Chase County handed Moundridge’s softball team a pair of losses on Tuesday, though the Wildcats were highly competitive in the second game.
Chase County was a 19-0 winner in the first game, scoring nine runs in the first inning. The Wildcats’ only hits were by Chelsey Knight and Jadah Moore, the latter’s being a double.
Moundridge was right with Chase County in Game 2 until a three-run homer in the fifth inning broke the game open.
The Wildcats had four hits in the game, two by Taylon Potts. Moore pitched well in defeat as Chase County generally scores in double digits.
“After the first game we came back strong,” Wildcat coach Aaron Annis said. “It was a good fight until the last out. I think this helped us get ready for regionals, as we have the chance to play Chase County in the second round.”
Annis says the Wildcats more than likely will draw Lebo in the first round.
