Kailee Berquam held Goodhue to one hit in a 7-1 victory for Kenyon-Wanamingo Monday in Goodhue.
Berquam struck out 11 and walked one in a complete game victory. Berquam surrendered one unearned run in the fourth inning and walked four.
“I really look at our conference and at least half the teams are going to have a pretty dominant pitcher,” Wildcats head coach Chris Irvin said.
Goodhue came into the game on the heels of a matchup with Zumbrota-Mazeppa, which features one of the area’s best pitchers in Megan Nelson, and got just two hits off Nelson.
Sophomore Mikayla Miller got the lone hit for the Wildcats (0-2, 0-2 HVL) who scored their lone run on a Brooke Bitzan groundout.
Sophomore Laurie Pearson started the game for Goodhue, but lasted just one inning after the Knights scored five runs in the first inning. Sophomore Emilee Roschen came on in relief and threw the final six innings. Roschen allowed two runs on six hits, struck out four and walked four.
Miller finished 1-for-2 with a walk.
The Wildcats face Cotter Thursday in Winona.
