Streaking Warrior girls win two more

Brueggemann added two hits, and Carly Haukapp, Cami Meddows, and Hannah Frerker all had hits for Wesclin.
Wesclin 6, Carlyle 5
Ali Brueggemann went the distance to earn the mound win and also figured in the decisive seventh-inning rally that gave the Warriors the win.
Each team put up multiple runs in the first inning, and Wesclin took a 5-4 lead with a single tally in the third. Carlyle tied things up in the top of the seventh before the Warriors pushed across a run in the bottom of the inning to steal the victory. Brueggemann led off the inning with a single, and Wesclin loaded the bases on a pair of walks before Carly Haukapp lashed a run-scoring single to win the game.
Haukapp had two rbi on the game, as did Madison Rapien. Brueggemann had a pair of hits, Cami Meddows singled home a run, and Rebecca Franke had a hit for Wesclin.
