SoHi softball tops Kenai in a slugfest

Posted: May 14, 2012 - 10:12pm

The visiting Soldotna softball team defeated Kenai Central 25-18 in a seven-inning Northern Lights Conference game Monday.

The game went all seven innings.

Kaycee Munn had a monster game for the Stars, hitting two home runs over the fence. Munn came to the plate seven times and reached base all seven times, walking four times. She had eight RBIs.

Nikki Hegge pitched the whole game for the Stars. Coach Dave Cleveland said only eight of Hegge’s 18 runs were earned. She struck out eight and walked 10. SoHi had 15 errors behind her.

“Both offenses were cranked up tonight,” Cleveland said. “We made a couple more plays than they did, but it was a good, hard-fought game.”

The Stars had just lost to Kenai last week and are 2-1 against the Kardinals this year.

“We knew it would be tough coming in,” Cleveland said. “We’ve been looking forward to this game since last week.

“Yeah, we gave up a few more runs than we would like, but when you can score 25 runs, it makes up for it.”

SoHi led 6-0 after the first 1 1-2 innings, but Kenai scored nine in the bottom of the second to take the lead.

By the end of the third inning, the game was tied at 10.

SoHi took control of the game by getting six runs in the fourth inning. The Stars led 17-13 after the fifth inning, and 20-14 after the sixth inning.

Briana King pitched the first five innings for the Kardinals, then Havan Shaginoff took over for the rest of the game.

The Stars play Skyview at the Soldotna Little League fields today at 4 p.m.

Wednesday, Kenai hosts Skyview at 6 p.m. and SoHi hosts Homer at 6 p.m.

the ref behind the plate

While both teams played great, the umpire behind the plate should be banned from all sports............not only was his calls on pitches horrible at best, but his knowledge of the rules was pathetic. At the end of the game while the teams shook hands, the soldotna coaches turned to shake the umps hands, which is routine. This guy ran to his car and left..........which shows he knew he was a POS. I have never seen girls as demoralized as this umpire made them. I take my hat off to Mark King..............as bad as Kenai was cheated, he kept to sportsmanship and encouraged the girls to keep going. He inspires me to be better everyday. I hope guys like that ump are held accountable for hurting young players. Its a game, and it should never be ruined by bad people that cant be fair.
