Mariners topple Panthers

Posted: Tuesday, May 18, 2010

The Homer softball team swept host Skyview 24-2 and 21-1 on Monday in Northern Lights Conference action.

"It was an improvement for the girls," said Skyview coach Steve Schoessler, whose team remained winless on the season. "There were a lot more errors at first, but as the game went on, they made a lot less."

Schoessler said Brittanie Whipple received the start in the first game and continued to improve on the mound. Schoessler also said Barb Smith did a good job at catcher in the game.

Maddy Ransom and Dakota Cruse scored runs for Skyview in the first game.

In the second game, Stefany Malatesta received the start and yielded just one run in the first inning and three runs in the second inning. But as Skyview's defense picked up, so did Homer's bats.

"Homer was hitting the ball really well," Schoessler said. "That didn't help us."

Kayla West scored the lone run for the Skyview offense, which had a runner reach base in every inning.

Schoessler also said Liz Schoessler was solid in closing out each game on the mound.

The Panthers will take on Kenai today at 5 p.m. at the Soldotna Little League fields.
