Lynx devour Kernels

Staff report

BV Coral Gonseth slides in safe at second base during play against Mitchell.

The Lady Lynx added two notches to the win column last week, after dismantling Mitchell in back-to-back games, the first a 16-4 tromping, and the nightcap, a 14-1 victory.


Brandon Valley coach Corey Christensen said his team did what they needed to do.


“The girls did a good job of making adjustments throughout the game and not trying to do too much,” he said. “They did a good job of taking what the pitcher was giving them. We got a lot of hard-hit doubles, so we’re not trying to hit the ball out of the ballpark and create four runs with one swing. We did a really good job of getting kids on, collective hitting and hitting as a whole.”


A pair of home runs – one by Kailee Craig, the other by Adrian Schoby – and a plethora of timely doubles was more than enough for the Lynx to claim victory after three innings of play, due to the 10-run rule.


Lynx pitcher Alika Csordacsics claimed the win. She allowed five hits and four runs over, was charged with two errors, two walks and struck out a trio of Mitchell batters.

The No. 3 Lady Lynx will play nine games over the next six days, starting with a Tuesday road trip to Yankton, at home against Roosevelt on Thursday and next Monday against No. 1 Harrisburg.

Christensen remains confident his team is up the challenge.

“I don’t know if you’re ever at where you want to be at, but we talk about it all the time. It’s a puzzle and hopefully you put the last piece in at the end of the year. You start with the corners at the beginning of the year – that’s us coaches and the kids are the pieces – and hopefully we can get it figured out and put them in the right spots.”
