Bulldogs score two more wins at Solon


Robertson gave the Bulldogs another great start in the pitching circle. The sophomore pitched her third-straight seven-inning shutout against Prairie, but the Bulldogs could not push across a run of their own forcing both teams to head into extra innings and, for OHS, to utilize the international tiebreaker for the first time this season.

With a runner at second to start the inning, the Bulldogs not only brought in Olivia Roark for the first run of the day but scored an insurance tally. Pinch runner Ashlyn Thompson scored on a run-scoring hit by Nicole Peyton to put Ottumwa up 2-0, good enough for Robertson who gave up no earned runs for the fourth-consecutive start on the way to improving to 7-0 on the season.

No. 2 (5A) Ottumwa (27-5, 16-4) edged Hoover in the nightcap 8-7 as Robertson allowed five earned runs against the Huskies in her eighth straight win. The Bulldogs at best can only pull within a game of the Indians with a sweep on Wednesday, meaning Ottumwa would need Indianola to be stunned themselves to have any chance at a Metro title as the two teams meet in a doubleheader Wednesday night at Huston Field at 6 p.m.

More on Monday’s doubleheader can be found in Wednesday’s edition of the Courier.
