GENEVA – The St. Charles North softball team pounded its way to another win over a Tri-Cities rival.
Mickey Goetz, Allison Hausl and Jordyn Wolfe had three hits each for the North Stars, who beat Geneva for the second time this week, 17-4, in five innings on Friday.
“Waiting on the ball was my main thought process,” Goetz said. “Defensively we were a little shaky in the beginning, but I think our bats made us more confident.”
Goetz (six RBIs) had an RBI single in the first and an RBI double in the second and third innings.
Defensively the North Stars (15-6, 11-2 UEC River) played well, as did starting pitcher Allison Hausl, who was told only an hour before the game she would be pitching. Hausl pitched all five innings, striking out three and walking one.
“I thought we were aggressive today trying to make plays,” St. Charles North coach Tom Poulin said, “… We caught them (Geneva) on the right day, they’re a very good team and we came through with some clutch hits and played well defensively.”
