WE ARE HEADING TO MSU!
June 15, 2021: Clinton softball defeated Riverview Gabriel Richard High School in the quarter final game at Concordia University, 4-2, on strong pitching from Sydney Schuler, great defense, and some hot bats.
The Redwolves now advance to semi final play at MSU Friday at 5:30 p.m.
Clinton scored first as Ava Ormsby got on with a bunt, then stole second base, and then scored on a bad throw as Richard’s catcher tried to pick her off at third base.
Clinton’s next score came in the third inning when Kendall Phillip got on base with a walk and Libbi Fair brought her home with a line drive two-run homer to right center field.
In the fifth inning, Emma Thompson squeezed in Jaecy Jones to stretch the Clinton lead to 4-0.
Richard scored two runs late in the game and got the tying run to second in the 7th inning, but with two outs, Schuler cleanly fielded a grounder to the mound and made the final out.
Clinton 4, Richard 2.
