Lake City bounced back to beat Mabel-Canton 22-2 in five innings Saturday to secure third place at its invitational tournament.
The Tigers dropped the first game of the tournament 10-0 in five innings to St. Croix Lutheran, but found their offense against the Cougars.
Lake City tallied 19 hits in the game and seven players had multiple hits, including Maddie Breuer, who went 3-for-3 with four runs, two RBI and a triple. Emily Moechnig went 3-for-4 with four RBI and Josie Kuchinka finished 3-for-3 with an RBI. The Tigers scored 14 runs in the third inning alone.
Alexa Blair gave up two runs on five hits to get the win for Lake City.
“We were down in a slump and we couldn’t get out,” Tigers head coach Katie Luhmann said. “We needed that last game to build that confidence back up.”
Lake City managed just two hits against St. Croix Lutheran and fell behind 7-0 after the second inning.
Jenna Privette, the girls hockey player who was temporarily paralyzed in the winter after getting hit from behind, went 3-for-3 with four RBI for St. Croix Lutheran.
The Tigers struck out eight times in the loss. Amy Dudley and Domonique Oelkers had the only hits for Lake City.
The Tigers face Goodhue Monday in Goodhue.
