Burlington 10, Westosha Central 0
Burlington used solid defense, a powerful offense and solid pitching to defeat host Westosha Central 10-0 in 5 innings last night. Josie Klein earned her 2nd win of the season over the Falcons allowing only 2 hits and no runs. Olivia Kazumura took the loss for the Falcons. Burlington took the lead in the very first frame. Jaina Westphal bunted and reached 2nd base on the error. Klein singled one out later to score Westphal. She scored one batter later on a single by Bridi Allen. The Demons added five more in the 3rd inning. Maddie Berezowitz doubled to lead off the inning and Klein doubled her in. An Alexandria Naber single scored Klein and Kya Kafer doubled her to third. After a walk, Gracie Peterson singled in both Naber and Kafer. Westphal added another run on a single. Burlington finished their onslaught in the 5th. Kafar walked and scored on a home run to center field by Ashley Schmalfeldt. Another run, scored by Jenna Schmalfeldt ended the scoring. “They got on us early and we never got in sync. This game was similar to the earlier game against them. We put the ball in play but they played solid defense behind their pitcher. Give them credit, they played loose and took it to us. No excuses, they were the better team tonight.” (co-head coach Tom Lampe) With the win, the Demons are 8-1 in the Southern Lakes and tied with Wilmot, depending on the results between Elkhorn and Wilmot. With the loss, the Falcons drop to 6-3 in the Southern Lakes Conference, two games behind Burlington and Wilmot. They are 11-5 overall. “We've had a good run in the conference but we know we need a lot of help to get back in the race. We will work on this one game at a time and worry about what we can control and not what we can't.” (co-head coach Tom Lampe) The Falcons return to action on Thursday when they play a conference double header at Delavan.
