WILD ROSE, WI - In their first game in almost two years, the Pacelli Cardinals scored eleven runs in the final two innings to claim a 13-0 win over Wild Rose in five innings. Sami Miller led the way offensively, driving in three while pitcher Grace Repinski dominated with eight strikeouts, only allowing three hits. For coach Ann Molski, it was a great feeling seeing her team on the diamond again.
“This was our sophomore’s first game as a Pacelli Cardinal. We’re going go one step at a time, and keep going forward after the butterflies and nerves go away,” Molski said after the game.
It took only seven batters for the Cardinals to get on the board with Hannah Trzinski getting the first RBI of the season with a single to drive in Emma Van Order in the second inning. Van Order herself got into the RBI column in the third, lining her second hit in consecutive innings over the third baseman’s head to give the Cardinals a 2-0 edge in a tight game at the time.
