Game Recap

Today the Fighting Saints traveled to Coon Rapids to open the start of the Section 7AAAA playoffs. The Fighting Saints were seeded #5 and had to take on the #4 seed-Coon Rapids for the first round game.
The Saints started off the game with a lead-off double from Hailey Heckenlaible, followed by a bunt single from Sydney Boelter, and then a RBI single from Kiley Murschel to score the first run of the game for the Saints. After that start the Saints were able to keep putting the ball in play and produced another four more runs to finish off the top of the first inning pushing a total of five runs through.
The Cardinals were able to get one run back in the bottom of the first inning, but after that senior pitcher Alex Marron threw a beautiful game holding off the Coon Rapids team to only four hits in the contest and one more run added in the 4th inning.
The Saints were able to seal the game in the 6th inning when pitch hitter, Marlis Green hit a single to left field and was followed by Ella Leipzig hitting her first varsity homerun over the center field wall. However, the Saints were not done in the sixth, Leipzig’s homerun was followed by a single from Kylie Bergman, a double from Hailey Heckenlaible, and then Sydney Boelter cleared the bases with her first varsity homerun as well in that same inning.
The Saints were led on the mound by senior, Alex Marron, who threw the complete game allowing only four hits and only one earned run.
Offensively, the Saints as a whole team were AMAZING!!! Kylie Bergman was 4 for 4 with 3 singles, a double, and 3 RBI’s, Hailey Heckenlaible was 3 for 5 with a single and two doubles, and both Ella Leipzig and Sydney Boelter hit their first varsity homeruns in this evening’s contest.
The Saints now move on to the second round of playoffs on Saturday in the winner’s brackets at Forest Lake to face the #1 seed: Anoka @ 10:30am.
COME CHEER ON YOUR FIGHTING SAINTS!
