Lady Bruins continue to roll at Bureau Valley
MANLIUS — Bureau Valley and St. Bede squeezed in a softball game Tuesday afternoon. St. Bede got on top early and continued to add runs throughout the game building a large eight-run lead going into the bottom of the fourth inning.
The Storm (2-3) found a way to add some runs late, but St. Bede didn’t bend much, winning 9-3. The starting pitchers were Bureau Valley’s Darcy Kepner and St. Bede’s Lainie Schweickert. St. Bede (8-3) had eight hits in the game with Storm only managing one.
“They did a nice job. It was a little chilly and we don’t get outside a lot. It was a nice effort,” said Mike Stariha, who was filling in for St. Bede coach Bill Prokup. He commented further saying the Lady Bruins hit when they needed to and fielded well.
Storm coach Brian Humphrey said, “We waited too long to start hitting. We had some good at-bats in the last couple innings. We dug ourselves into a hole there in the first inning with a couple of errors. The defense wasn’t real sharp tonight. You can’t let a team like St. Bede jump out to a lead like that with Lainie Schweickert on the mound. I’m proud of the fact that we battled the whole game. We just got too far behind and waited too long to start swinging the bats. St. Bede is a good ball club, but we can play better.”
