Lapel sweeps Shenandoah in doubleheader

LAPEL — Ernie Banks may have wanted to “play two,” but Saturday the Lapel and Shenandoah softball teams seemed intent on playing three. In the end, Lapel swept a doubleheader with a 5-4 win in 13 innings and a 14-4 victory in six.

The twinbill originally was scheduled for 10 a.m., but wet weather pushed the start back to noon.

Game 1 turned into a classic.

Shenandoah scored first in the fourth inning when Jayden Barnard drove in Rachel Krathwohl. Lapel tied it in the bottom of the fifth on a single by Kirsten Rich. The seesaw affair went back to Shenandoah’s advantage in the top of the sixth on an RBI single by Ashley Brown.

Lapel needed a run in the bottom of the seventh to keep the game going and had the top of the order coming up. Katelyn Willis slapped a lead-off single to right. With one out, Rich reached on an error and Willis moved to third. Daniele Burnell hit a sacrifice fly to right to score Willis and knot the game at 2-2. Rich was left stranded at third when Brooke Daniels hit a grounder to short and Mackenzie Land was forced at second.

The game was stalmated until the 10th when Shenandoah scored on a groundout by Taylor Goyette. Lapel tied the game in the bottom of the inning when Land drove in Burnell, who had led off with a double.

Shenandoah went back up in the 11th when Ellie Rider drove in Ali Cole for a 4-3 advantage. Lapel once again answered with a lead-off double by Willis and an RBI single by Rich.

Both teams left two runners on base in the 12th before Daniels sent the Raiders down in order in the top of the 13th. Willis was hit by a pitch to start the bottom of the inning but was forced at second on a fielder’s choice by Hannah Harless. Rich struck out looking for the second out before Burnell drove a single to left-center. It brought up Land, who was 2-for-2 with three walks. Land laced a shot to right, eluding Morgan Tapscott’s glove and landing for the winning run.
