Ball Hawks : Teamwork driving Lynnville-Sully Hawks in 2013 softball run to regional title game
SULLY — Give them a walk, a single or whatever, and they’ll take the next base on you. Teams have to be aware when the softball is still in play when tangling with the 2013 Lynnville-Sully High Hawks.
Lone Tree High’s Lions were the latest team to learn this lesson. It came quick as the Hawks sent 11 batters to the plate and scored seven runs in the first inning of Friday’s Iowa Class 1A Region 5 semifinal game.
Sixth-ranked Lynnville-Sully rolled to a 10-0 win in five innings. The Hawks play for the Region 5 championship and a berth in the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union Class 1A State Tournament tonight.
The Hawks take on Lisbon, which knocked off Sigourney 9-3 Friday in semifinal play, at 7 p.m. tonight at Williamsburg. The winner advances to the IGHSAU Class 1A State Tournament, July 22-26, at Fort Dodge.
Following a double by starting pitcher Madison Rasmusson, Brenna Lanser laid down a bunt for a single and kept running to second base. The Lions’ players were a bit confused.
It happened again on the next batter as Shelby Davis bunted for a base hit to drive in the first run of the game and kept running to second on the play. Becca Vos doubled to center field for two RBIs and moved to third on a pass ball. A double by Jade Van Rees drove in another run.
Lasandra James was hit by a pitch then Kristal Beyer hit an RBI single and went to second. A groundout by Shaylin Lukehart produced a run.
With two gone, Rasmusson was back up to bat and put down a squeeze bunt for a single that brought in a run.
And so it would go.
