HHS softball: Girls split with Marion

It was a tale of two games Thursday night at Marion when the Hillsboro High School softball team split with the home Warriors.

Jenesa Klose pitched a complete-game shutout in the first game, as the Trojans were victorious 11-0.

Things were going that way for the Trojans in game two, as they led 6-2 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning.

Marion then scored five runs to claim the 7-6 victory.

In game one Hillsboro ended any doubt of who would come out on top after they jumped ahead 7-0 after the first two innings.

HHS had six hits, including a double from Amanda Bina during the early run.

A quiet next two innings resulted in just one run, but the Trojans broke open the game with another three in the top of the fifth to make it 11-0.

Klose gave up just three hits during the game, while the team recorded 10 of its own.

Bri Loewen and Steph Abbott each had two hits, and scored two and three runs respectively.

Game two was a more consistent scoring one for the Trojans, as they scored in every inning except the second.

However, it was just one run each time, and the Warriors took advantage with the huge seventh inning.

Loewen added two more hits in the game, while Bina and Jessica Klose both chipped in with a triple.

Jenesa Klose had gone 13 innings on the night, allowing just two runs before the scoring outburst in the final inning.
