IKM-Manning At Kuemper 

Kuemper 9

IKM-Manning 6


Kuemper jumped out early but IKM-Manning battled back late before the Knights edged away for the win in the season opener for both teams. Myli Schaefer was fantastic in the circle for Kuemper with 12 strikeouts while Ella Richards kept throwing strikes and though Kuemper finished with 16 hits, the Wolves defense kept coming up with plays to limit the damage after the 1st inning, keeping themselves within striking distance.

IKM-Manning struck first as Anna Stangl ripped a triple to right field to leadoff the game. She scored on an RBI ground ball by Alikxa McGinn. Kuemper collected five hits in the bottom of the 1st inning, scoring 3-runs with Kaylie Diercksen and Ellie Sibbel doubling and picking up an RBI along with Myli Schaefer. Mylie Schaefer struck out six straight Wolves from the 1st to the 3rd innings but the Wolves hung close, allowing a single run in the 2nd with Morgan Masching walking, stealing 2nd base and scoring on a single by Ally Sommerfeld. Allison Ostrander added an RBI single to score Sarah Batz in the 3rd inning and Kuemper led 5-1. IKM-Manning chipped away with Alikxa McGinn scoring in the 4th inning on a Knight error. They added three more runs in the 5th inning and had a chance to add more. Lauren Greving walked to leadoff the inning. Caylie Rasmussen ran for her and would score later in the inning. Hannah McKinney reached on an error and Anna Stangl singled. Karlee Arp was  hit-by-pitch to load the bases and Alikxa McGinn reached on an error, scoring a run. Keagan Eischied sac fly added the third run of the inning and the Wolves were down 6-5 going bottom 5th. Kuemper answered in the bottom half with Morgan Masching bunting for a single and scoring on an Ally Sommerfeld single after Masching had stolen 2nd and 3rd bases. Kaylie Diercksen drove in Sommerfeld and the Knights stretched the lead to 8-5 going to the 6th. Kuemper added an insurance run in the 6th and IKM-Manning pushed across a run in the top 7th but Myli Schaefer got a strikeout to end the game.

Myli Schaefer went 7 innings to earn the win, allowing 4-hits and 1 earned run. She struck out 12 while going 3-4 at the plate with an RBI. Kaylie Diercksen added 3 hits with a pair of doubles and 2 RBI while Ally Sommerfeld had 3 hits and 2 RBI, Charlotte Schwabe had a pair of hits and scored twice and Morgan Masching scored twice and stole 3 bases.

Anna Stangl had 2 hits with a triple and scored once to lead IKM-Manning. Alikxa McGinn drove in a run and scored with Keagan Eischeid earning her first varsity base hit. Ella Richards suffered the loss while striking out 5 and walking 2.
