SALINA — McPherson’s U-12 Lady Express suffered a pair of rare softball defeats on Tuesday against the Impact.

It was all Impact in Game 1, scoring 10 runs in the first two innings to key a 12-1 rout.

Brette Doile and Ashlon Stanford had the only McPherson hits. Abby Hipp took the loss, but only five of the runs she allowed were earned.

Game 2 was a difficult loss as Salina scored two final-inning runs for a 6-5 victory. McPherson had led 5-3 after three innings.

The Express lost despite out-hitting the Impact, 9-5. Hailey Henson had two hits to lead the way, one a double. Olivia Morgan also stroked a double. 

Henson took the loss in relief of Doile.

The Express is now 24-8 on the season.
