TWIN VALLEY — The Fergus Falls 18U softball team is firing on all cylinders as the season reaches its autumn.
With two outstanding pitching performances and a threatening offensive attack, Fergus was able to sweep Norman County East/Ulen-Hitterdal in a doubleheader Tuesday.
Pitcher Sadie Knudson was dealing heat in game one as she recorded nine strikeouts and allowed one run in Fergus’ 8-1 victory.
Knudson also got it done at the plate as she went two for three with two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base. Teammate Annie Murphy was a thief on the bases as she collected three stolen bases in a one for two effort.
In game two, Devonie Smith and the Fergus offense attacked NCE/UH’s pitching and came away with a 13-6 decision.
Smith was on fire from the plate going three for four, two triples and a double, with three RBI, three runs scored and a stolen bag. Amber Boese also knocked in multiple runs going one for two with two RBI.
