The Falcon bats came alive in the fifth inning to score five runs in a five-run defeat of Kingsley-Pierson June 17 in Kingsley.
Winning pitcher Ciara Dotzler helped her own cause with a two-for-three effort at the plate. She drove in three runs. On the mound, Dotzler allowed three earned runs on seven hits, no walks and six strikeouts.
Adding to the Falcons' 12-hit offense, all singles, were Mallory Cates (three-for-three) and Jensen Boger, Cheyenne Wilcke and Payton Allen, who were all two-for-three and Kallie Schroeder who singled. Schroeder, Wilcke and Boger each had one RBI.
"It was another well played ball game," noted coach Kurt Brown. "We got up early and were able to cruise a little bit. I was pleased with the effort and attitude of the girls. We are starting to get some consistent play from game to game and from inning to inning."
