Third-ranked EBF takes two of three at Indian Classic

OSKALOOSA — Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont steadily increased its offensive output at the Indian Classic Saturday.

The Rockets, ranked third in Class 2A, met another third-ranked team in Carlisle (4A) in the first game of the tournament and the Wildcats used a first-inning run to gain a 1-0 victory.

Shyanne Dubois led the game off for the Wildcats with a single to center then stole second. She took third on a groundout and scored on a sacrifice bunt by Payton Mercer.

That was all Carlisle needed as Gabby Schnathorst allowed just three hits to the Rockets.

Nataliah Hopkins singled and doubled for Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont as she struck out seven and allowed four hits to Carlisle.

The Rockets took on PCM in the second game and had four hits in the contest, but won 3-1.

Haegen Boyer scored twice for Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont as Hopkins (14-2) scattered three hits and struck out three.

The final day of the day was the Rockets' best of the tournament.

They collected 11 hits and coasted to a 10-0 pasting of Pella Christian.

Four players — Boyer, Hopkins, Rachel Maloy and Ashley Pilcher — all had two hits in the game as Hopkins added three RBI and scored twice. Boyer and Tasha Alexander and crossed home plate twice. Boyer and Maloy had two RBI each to back the one-hit pitching of Randie Richmond (1-1).
