WANAMINGO — The Knights softball team made two of its three errors in the second inning. Randolph took full advantage.
The Rockets scored four unearned runs in the frame to claim an 8-4 victory Tuesday night.
“That was the hole again,” Kenyon-Wanamingo coach Matt Nelson said. “We’re not making the simple plays and that’s frustrating.”
The Knights trailed 5-0 before posting a run in the third. They fell behind 8-1 before rallying for three in the seventh. Liz Greseth’s two-run double provided the biggest blow in the final frame.
Nicole Lubahn had three of K-W’s nine hits. Stacy Sahl added two hits, including a double, and scored once.
Brianna Miller also had an RBI double for the Knights, who fall to 3-9 on the year.
Rachel Sandager pitched the first five innings to suffer the loss. Seventh-grader Siri Sviggum struck out two in her first varsity action to finish things up.
K-W plays host Thursday to Winona Cotter.
