MOUNDRIDGE — It’s been feast or famine for the Moundridge softball team.

It was feast for the Wildcats on Thursday against Inman, taking both ends of a doubleheader, 6-3 and 16-1.

Moundridge, 6-6, has now swept three doubleheaders and been swept in the other three.

“It was nice to see our team relax and have fun playing this game,” MHS coach Clark Wedel said. “Our team has a great deal of potential that we have not realized yet. Hopefully, we can use these two nice wins to gain some momentum into next week against Sedgwick and Bennington. We just need to keep improving and have everyone be competitive at the plate.”

The Wildcats spotted the Teutons a 2-0 lead in the first game, as they chipped away with runs in four of their six at-bats.

Jadah Moore was 2 for 3 with two RBIs to lead Moundridge. Elizabeth Ratzlaff also had two hits, while Zaelynn Foth drove in two runs. 

Emily Knight was the winner, allowing only one earned run. She did not have a walk and fanned six.

Krystan Miller, Jewell Croley and Haley White all had two hits for Inman. Croley took the loss.

Moundridge needed only three innings to win the second game, 16-1. It scored nine in the second and five in the third.

The Wildcats walked their way to the win, as Inman issued 12 free passes. Moore and Foth both had two hits for MHS, with Foth driving in three runs and Moore two. Ratzlaff also had two RBIs.

Croley had two of Inman’s three hits.
