GALVA — Maybe Canton-Galva’s softball team and Moundridge need to play one more game to determine which team is the best.

The Eagles and Wildcats split a doubleheader on Tuesday.

Canton-Galva was the Game 1 winner, 9-6. The Eagles had back-to-back innings where they scored four and three runs to seize control of the game. The Wildcats made 10 errors, which aided the Eagles’ win.

The Eagles collected 10 hits, including two each by Autumn Colgin, Taryn Nordstrom and Carissa Klatt. Taylor Everett was the winning pitcher.

Zaelynn Foth had two hits and two RBIs to pace the Wildcats. Ellen Durst had the other two MHS hits.

“We just weren’t mentally ready to go in the first game,” Moundridge coach Aaron Annis said. “Nothing went in our favor. Canton-Galva came ready to play in that first game. They were hitting the ball and making plays on defense. As the game went on we started to make plays, but it was just too late.”

Moundridge stormed back to win Game 2 13-3, scoring three runs in the first and then exploding for six in the third. The Wildcats were much better in the field with only three errors.

“We did a much better job at being ready to play in the second game,” Annis said. “We were patient at the plate and hit our pitch. Our defense was there to back up Zizi Sebrant and Zaelynn Foth that came in later in the game. We were more focused as a team, which we will need to transfer over for our game on Friday. We host Sedgwick Friday for our Breast Cancer game.”

Keira Sebrant was immense by going 3 for 4 with four RBIs to lead the Wildcats. Foth was 3 for 4 with two RBIs and Taylon Potts was 2 for 2 with two RBIs.

Colgin led C-G by going 2 for 2.

Zizi Sebrant worked the first four innings for MHS before Foth finished up.
