Shoreland Lutheran softball won their 7th game in a row on Monday with a 7-6 road win at Congress Field in Burlington.

The Pacers jumped out early to a 4-0 lead in the top of first on a pair of 2 out, 2 rbi hits from Kaylee Ruiz and Alyssa Pavlovich. The Hilltoppers tied it with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first and second.  The Pacers added a run in the 4th and 6th inning before scoring their final tally in the top of the 7th when Amanda Heusteberg got down a sac bunt for an rbi that would turn out to be game winner.  The Hilltoppers sent 8 batters to the plate in the bottom of the 7th, scoring 2 but ultimately leaving the bases loaded with the score 7-6. 

"Bend but don't break. That's what we did tonight and in the end we did just enough to hold off BCC for the win. We had a much better approach at the plate against Weis this time around and made them earn every out. Amanda's bunt was clutch and ended up winning the game for us. Grace Olson was lights out at the plate and on defense tonight too."

Leading the Pacers were Haylee Dodd, 2-4, 2 runs, 2SB, Olson 2-2, 2 BB, 3B, 2 runs, 1 rbi, 2 SB, and Olivia Miller 2-4, 1 run. Erin Borchardt picked up her 8th win on the season going the distance allowing 6 runs, 4 ER, scattering 12 hits, 3 BB, 6 K.

For BCC Kelly Pum had 2 hits, 2 rbi, Paige Kerkhoff 2 hits, 2 runs, Kelsee Weis 2 hits, 1 rbi. Autumn Weiss took the loss, 7 runs, 10 hits, 3 BB and 8 Ks.
