Lady Redskins Stay Busy To End The Week


The Nokomis Lady Redskins continued play on Thursday, April 18, with a road game against Taylorville. 

The Lady Redskins came out with momentum taking the early lead. The Lady Tornadoes of Taylorville answered right back in the second inning taking the lead 4-2. 

The Lady Skins would attempt to come back, tying it up, but the Lady Tornadoes bats were hot and kept putting things together and getting hits. 

The Lady Redskins would make one last ditch effort to come back in the seventh inning scoring three runs, but it would not be enough as the Lady Redskins lost 13-7.

Emma Hill, Emma Blaum, Mia Fesser, Karlie Wanger (with a double), Sophia Keller, Maddie Sowarsh and Aubrie Jaros would all contribute hits for the Lady Redskins. Emma Blaum pitched for the Lady Redskins.

Nokomis vs. Edinburg

The next game of the week was on Friday, April 12, against Edinburg. 

The game started out competitively for both teams. It was not until the top of the fourth that Edinburg scored the first run. In the bottom of the fourth the Lady Redskins would tie it up. Edinburg would end up taking the lead later on and winning the game 6-1.

Baylee Cesaretti, Maddie Sowarsh and Emma Blaum would all add hits for the Lady Redskins. Sowarsh pitched for the Redskins and had 13 strikeouts, while Edinburg's Rylie Burney had 19 strikeouts for the Wildcats.

Nokomis Tournament

The Lady Redskins picked up play the very next day on Saturday, April 13, in the Nokomis Round Robin Tournament. 

In the first game of the tournament, the Lady Redskins played Vandalia. The Lady Vandals took the lead right off the bat in the first inning. 

It seemed the Lady Redskins bats had turned cold. With only a few hits and some errors in the field, the Lady Redskins could not keep up with the Lady Vandals. The Vandals would continue to score and win the game 4-0.

Emma Blaum and Emily Cesaretti would add hits for the Nokomis Lady Redskins. Maddie Sowarsh pitched for the Lady Redskins and had nine strikeouts.

The final game of the day was against St. Elmo/Brownstown. The Lady Redskins' bats began to heat up as they took the lead right off in the first inning. The Lady Eagles would answer back tying it up, but the Lady Redskins would bust through and end up winning the game 7-3.

Karlie Wanger, Emma Blaum, Mia Fesser, Emma Hill, Emily Cesaretti, Delaney Keiser and Maddie Sowarsh (with a home run) would contribute with hits for the win. Emma Blaum pitched for the Lady Redskins, posting seven strikeouts and walking zero.

While the Redskins would take third, Pana would be the tournament's winner after beating St. Elmo/Brownstown in their first game and Vandalia in the championship by a 3-2 final score.

The Lady Redskins have another busy week of play and travel ahead of them as they play Springfield Calvary at home on Monday, an away game against Litchfield on Wednesday, an away game against Hillsboro on Thursday, and an away game against Effingham on Friday.
