Riverfield gets back on winning track


“I think here, it takes a little while to get warmed up and in a rhythm,” Kelley said. “If we would have let them score a couple runs without getting any outs then we may have went out and said, ‘Hey Rachel settle down a little bit.’”

That would be the last inning a Missouri batter would reach base.

Duncan also found success at the plate going 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored.

“I struggled a little bit (pitching early), but kept my head up,” Duncan said. “(Offensively) I started pulling the ball better, I had been popping it up lately.”

Runs came early for Riverfield as it put up three in the first inning on three hits, two walks and an error. The big hit came on a Katlin Hubble one-out RBI triple scoring Myracle Settles who reached on a five-pitch walk.

“If you can get up on a team two or three to nothing in the first inning or two, you can kind of change the way you coach,” Kelley said. “You don’t have to be as aggressive on the bases. It is always a momentum builder when you can get up early.”

Two more runs came in the second after Duncan scored following her lead off double. Hubble drove her in with a single to center. She finished going 3-for-4 with three RBI’s. Indiana added one in each of the next three innings.

“This is a tough pool, but I think 3-1 can defenatly get you in (to the semifinals),” Kelley said. “If people start beating each other you can get in at 2-2 with the tie breaker.”

Riverfield (1-1) continues pool play on Tuesday against North Ottawa Youth Softball Association (Michigan) at Stokley Field at 1:30 p.m. Riverfield is in a first place tie, with the top two teams from each pool advance to the semifinals on Thursday at 11 a.m. The championship game is Thursday at 3 p.m.
