MOUNDRIDGE — Moundridge’s softball team scored in double digits in both games Tuesday to sweep Remington.

The Wildcats took the opener 13-11 behind a 12-hit attack. Chelsey Knight led the ‘Cats by going 3 for 5 with three RBIs. Other big hitters were Zaelynn Foth, Jadah Moore and Zizi Sebrant. Moore, Keira Sebrant and Bethany Stucky all roped doubles.

Moore was the winning pitcher, fanning seven.

Moundridge walked it off in Game 2, 13-12. The Wildcats won it on a fielder’s choice. They had trailed 6-0 after 2 1/2 innings, but exploded for 10 runs in the third. Remington scored two in the seventh to go ahead, only to see MHS push across a run in the bottom of the inning.

Keira Sebrant had two hits and three RBIs. Stucky, Zizi Seibrant and Jasmine Walls all had two RBIs. Moore was the winner in relief to complete a 2-0 day.

“We played with a lot of heart today,” MHS coach Aaron Annis said. “It seemed like the girls were on a mission tonight to come away with two wins and that’s what they did. They were focused and ready to go at the start of the game and they never gave up until the games were over.

“Jadah Moore worked hard tonight on the mound for us. Pitching a complete game 1 and then having to come in the second game to relieve Zizi Sebrant when she was struggling. They did everything that I could of asked for. We never gave up, we never put our head down when something went throw and we just kept on pushing. This group of kids that I have are a special group. I’m ready to take this team into war this season.”
