Ladies lose twice to Flyers

The Softball-Team lost twice against the titleholders Therwil Flyers on Sunday, May 10 at Therwil.
The Flyers posted a 11-4 victory over the Challengers in Game 1. The Challengers had a good start, as they scored three runs in the first inning on a bases loaded walk to Andrea Wirth, a RBI-single by Alexia Zingg and a passed ball. But the C’s threw the lead away in the third, as they committed several errors enabling the Flyers to score four times. And the Flyers did some more damage in the fourth inning, as Jennifer Feret belted a three-run homer in her very first game for the Flyers to make it 8-3. Simone Zurschmitten added a run for the C’s in the fifth, before Melanie Wanner delivered a two-run triple for the reigning champion to make it 10-4.
Game 2 saw a pitcher’s duel between Jennifer Feret for the Flyers and Karen Heimgartner for the Challengers. The Flyers opened the score with two runs in the first inning and that was all they needed. The C’s didn’t give up and put runners on second and third with no outs in the seventh, but Feret shut the door on the C’s with two strikeouts and a groundout to end the threat. Feret tossed a two-hitter with thirteen strikeouts and one walk for the win, while Heimgartner (1-1) allowed two runs and four hits with eight strikeouts.
The Challengers (2-2) will host the Bern Cardinals (0-2) on Saturday, May 23 at the Klopstockwiese.
