MOUNDRIDGE — Moundridge’s softball team bounced back from a 9-2 first game loss to Sedgwick on Monday for a 10-6 victory to earn a split of the doubleheader.

The Wildcats led Game 1 2-1 before the Cardinals scored eight unanswered runs. MHS was held to four hits, with Chelsey Knight collecting two. Sedgwick also had just four hits, but took advantage of walks to score many of its runs.

“We just weren’t ready to play in the first game,” Wildcat coach Aaron Annis said. “They hit the ball when they had runners in scoring position and we just didn’t.”

The Wildcats came out focused in Game 2, scoring the game’s first nine runs. Zizi Sebrant pitched a two-hitter over 6 2/3 innings, with Zaelynn Foth recording the final out.

Foth led the offense by going 3 for 4, while Knight drove in three runs. Sebrant helped her own cause with two hits.

“I thought we came back strong in the second game, scoring a few runs to take an early lead,” Annis said. “Zizi Sebrant pitched well having 11 Ks on the night. We need to keep this momentum going as we play Sterling Tuesday for our last game of the regular season.”
