G-K softball rallies in 7th, tops Somonauk
March 16, 2012Genoa-Kingston High School
Genoa-Kingston didn’t wait long to introduce some excitement to its softball season.
After a blowout win in Wednesday’s opener, the Cogs rallied with five runs in the bottom of the seventh inning Thursday against Somonauk to win, 14-13, on a walk-off error. Amy Clark’s double with runners on second and third tied the score with two outs.
G-K (2-0) trailed 6-0 after three innings before Danielle Engel was inserted in relief. Engel, who pitched a one-hitter Wednesday, got her second win of the season.
“It was exciting for all the kids and everyone involved,” G-K coach Mike Lauer said. “I’m very pleased with the never-quit, never-die attitude we showed. It could have happened three times, we were down multiple runs there, but we just kept fighting.”
