PREP SOFTBALL: Falcons stumble

BENTON — The middle of the Bremen batting order did plenty of damage in handing the Fairfield Falcons their first high school softball loss of the season.

The middle three hitters for the Lions accumulated eight hits, five RBI and six runs in a 10-5 win Tuesday night at Fairfield.

“Bremen has some pretty good hitters in the middle of their lineup,” Fairfield coach John Skibbe said. “They pounded the ball and we were a little sloppy in our defense.”

Senior Brooke Baker had three doubles, an RBI and three runs; freshman Chelsea Huppert a double, two singles, an RBI and two runs and senior Taylor Lashbrook a double, single, three RBI and a run to lead the Bremen offense.

“So far this season we have gotten a lot out of our bats,” Bremen coach Mike Huppert said. “I’ve moved players around in the lineup and they still seem to hit when called upon.

“We also seem to be scoring early and getting up on teams.”

The Lions scored two runs in the top of the first, but the Falcons roared right back with four runs in the bottom of the frame. Sophomore Danica Mast and senior Riley Troyer both had two-run singles.

“We gave up those couple early runs and it was good to see the girls comeback he way they did,” Skibbe said. “We got back on top which is where we needed to be.”

The Fairfield lead didn’t last long as Bremen answered with four runs in the top of the second as senior Megan Stouder singled in one and Lashbrook drove home a pair of runs.

The Falcons scored again in the bottom of the second to make it 6-5 and that’s the way it remained until Bremen added four runs in the top of the seventh.

“Both teams settled down after the first couple of innings,” Huppert said.

Huppert credited a pitching change for the Lions when Chelsea Huppert took over in the fourth inning for starter junior Alexis Pate.

“Chelsea came in and let the defense behind her do the work,” Huppert said.

An example of that was in the bottom of the seventh when the Falcons hit three hard shots that were turned into outs by solid defensive players from junior Maci Moren at second and senor Megan Stouder at short.

“We hit the ball harder at times than we have this season,” Skibbe said. “The bottom of the seventh was one example. We hit the ball hard, but the Bremen defenders made the plays.”

Seniors Alex DeWitt and Kaela Miller both had two singles for the Falcons.

Fairfield (5-1) travels to face NECC rival Lakeland on Thursday,

“It’s never easy to lose, but we are trying to keep our focus in the conference,” Skibbe said. “We have a tough game coming up with Lakeland. We made some mistakes tonight. We need to learn from them and make ourselves a better team.”
