Ladies split with Eagles

The Softball-Team stayed in fourth place after a split with the fifth placed Reussbühl Eagles on Saturday, August 29 at Reussbühl. Claudia Stierli pitched a three-hitter, as the Eagles posted a 11-3 victory in Game 1. The Challengers’ offense was almost inexistent, as Karen Heimgartner, Elisabete Vieira and Simona Cellar had the only hits for the C’s, while the defense committed five errors that led to a total of nine unearned runs. Leandra Simitovic allowed 11 runs – only two of them earned – and eight hits with one walk and six strikeouts.
Game 2 saw a different Challengers team, as Simone Zurschmitten opened the score with a 2-run triple in the first inning. And the C’s added some more runs for a 5-1 lead after two frames, before they delivered four hits and scored six runs in the sixth inning to make it 11-1. Karen Heimgartner tossed six strong innings with ten strikeouts and two walks, while Simona Cellar, Leandra Simitovic and Ziegylou Wehrli had two hits apiece.
The Challengers are now one victory away from clinching the playoff berth. They will face their cross-town rivals Zurich Barracudas on Sunday, September 6 at the Klopstockwiese.
