BENNINGTON — Darkness fell on Tuesday before Moundridge and Bennington could complete their softball doubleheader.

The Wildcats won the opener 22-6, but the marathon nightcap ended in the gloaming with the teams tied at 21-21. There are no lights at Bennington’s field.

Moundridge scored in every inning of the opener, including eight runs in the sixth to break the game open.

Chelsey Knight had four RBIs with a triple, double and single. 

“We started off strong, hitting the ball and making plays,” MHS coach Aaron Annis said. “But we slowly let them back into the game. Jadah Moore pitched really well today, only giving up one walk the whole first game. I was really pleased with her performance on the mound.”

Maybe the ease of the first game relaxed the Wildcats in the nightcap.

“We came out flat in this game. We could get the ball, but we had a hard time fielding and making plays on the defensive side” Annis said. “I feel the cooler temperatures got to us.”

Moore had four RBIs for the ‘Cats and Keira Sebrant and Taylor Potts drove in three runs apiece. Knight, Moore, Keira Sebrant, Ziza Sebrant and Potts all had two hits.
