MHS softball surges to split
After a late comeback bid fell just short against Moundridge to begin senior night, the Lady Warriors bounced back with a 11-1 victory to salvage the sweetness of senior night.
“Sometimes great teams have to work through things, and we did that tonight,” head coach Jennifer Felvus said.
The Lady Warriors were down 5-0 before tying the game in the bottom of the seventh inning in their last chance. The Wildcats were able to put them away in extras, however, winning 7-6.
“We worked hard, and while we didn’t come away with the win, I was proud of the fight we showed late,” Felvus said. “We were able to put it away and put it back right in the second game.”
The Warriors came out hot, and rolled to an 11-1 victory in five innings.
It was senior night for the Warriors, which Felvus, in her third year as coach, said is becoming more bittersweet for her each year.
“I really love my team, my girls,” she said. “Realizing we’re nearing an end, and that some of these girls will be going on and not coming back, it’s always bittersweet.”
The Warriors play Thursday at Little River before regional play begins May 18.
“I feel like we’re going into postseason really at the best place we could,” Felvus said. “Whatever happened in game one tonight, it was important, and I’m glad we got through it prior to postseason.”
