MOUNDRIDGE — Moundridge’s softball team bounced back from being swept on Thursday by sweeping on Friday.

The Wildcats defeated Trinity Catholic 7-6 and 14-4 to even their record at 2-2.

In Game 1, the Wildcats won in walk-off fashion, scoring the winning run on a Celtic error.

MHS actually was out-hit 9-5. Zaelynn Foth had two hits for the Wildcats. Jadah Moore was the winning pitcher, going all seven innings and striking out four.

“We played so much better as a team tonight,” MHS coach Aaron Annis said. “It was great to see our players fight until the end and come away with the close victory. Jadah Moore was great on the mound... she is getting better and better every game.”

It was all Wildcats in Game 2. Zizi Sebrant was the winning pitcher and fanned three. The bats came alive as Chelsey Knight led the way by going 4 for 5 with four RBIs. Foth and Moore collected two hits apiece and Foth drove in three runs. Elle Durst and Keira Sebrant added two RBIs. 

“We seemed to be comfortable at the plate and out in the field,” Annis said.
