14s fall in regular season finale

HARTINGTON— The Hartington 14-and-under girls’ softball team ended the regular season here last week with an 8-1 setback against Crofton.

Crofton took the early 2-0 advantage in the first frame, but Hartington came back in its half of the inning to  plate a run.
Lead-off batter Shelby Hochstein singled, then stole her way around the bases to score Hartington’s lone run of the contest.
Alli Walter took the loss on the mound for Hartington. She struck out four Crofton batters in the game, but gave up 11 walks and three hits.
Hartington’s offense was only able to muster two hits in the contest. Hochstein’s lead-off single and a second-inning single by Kenedy Biltoft.
Hartington and Crofton now enter post-season action.
