Copperheads split openers on Day 1

The Anaconda High softball team picked the wrong time to play Laurel at the Laverne Combo.

The Locomotives, who have spent the better part of the season seeking consistency, arrived at Stodden Park on Friday morning and ended up having one of its better games.

Hailey Spitzer went 2 for 2, including a two-run home run in an eight-run fourth inning as the Locomotives beat the Copperheads, 11-3, in the tournament opener for both teams.

“It was errors that killed us there and Laurel did hit the ball well, but it was just fundamental errors,” Anaconda head coach Dotsie Shafer said.

Perhaps even more impressive than the Laurel offense was pitcher Brianne Jones, who retired the first eight batters she faced and accomplished the rare task keeping Anaconda leadoff hitter Courtney Moodry without a hit.

The Copperheads were able generate some offense against the Locomotives but on a day like Friday, it wasn’t nearly enough.

“This game was huge for us,” said Laurel coach Greg Branstetter. “We’ve been up and down all season so we needed a game like this. We put the bat on the ball and got some strong pitching.”

Anaconda pitcher Kristy Hayden performed admirably, keeping the Copperheads within reach, until the fateful fourth.

The Locomotives took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Spitzer hit a leadoff double and scored on a single by Jones. Laurel added two runs in the third inning – one unearned – when Ayla Grandpre reached on an error and later scored on a bases-loaded walk. Kylie Goodson added the second run of the inning by scoring on a sacrifice fly to left field.

Anaconda started to figure out Jones by the top of the fourth inning, scoring its first run on back-to-back doubles by Lacee Moodry and Delanie Chapman.

The Laurels responded in the home half of the fourth by sending 13 batters to the plate and extending their lead to 11-1.

The Copperheads needed to score at least one run in the top of the fifth to keep the game going and showed their toughness in doing so. Chloe Worl led off the inning with an infield single. Bailee Oxnam entered the game as a pinch-runner and made her way to third base on a couple of wild pitches. Hayden walked, and Hannah Schaefer followed with a single to right field, scoring Oxnam. A sacrifice fly by Lacee Moodry scored Hayden.

Because of the full slate of games scheduled for Friday and today, all contests were held to a time limit. Though the Copperheads scored enough runs in the fifth inning to continue playing, they opted to stop the game because time would have likely run out during Laurel’s fifth-inning at-bat.

“We hit the ball well and we knew we had the pitching,” Branstetter said. “They just had to get their confidence up.”

Anaconda 11, Hardin 4

Anaconda used first inning home runs by Delanie Chapman and Sara Schaefer to take an early 3-0 lead.

Schaefer added another round tripper two innings later to bring home two runs and give the Copperheads a 6-2 lead.

A two-RBI single by Mavrinac in the same inning upped the Anaconda edge to 8-2 before the Copperheads added two more runs prior to Hardin finally getting out of the inning,

Lacee Moodry paced Anaconda with three hits while Chapman and Schaefer each recorded three RBI.

Shafer said her team’s four games at the tournament are crucial in preparing for the postseason, which begins next week.

“It gives us a chance to work on our fundamentals and on our certain strengths and get that extra practice in,” Shafer said. “Sara hitting her first one out (Thursday) and then again here (against Hardin) — now the other girls are stepping up big at the plate and that can only help be a boost for them.”

Red-hot BC pounds Whitefish, 11-1

The Butte Central softball team is officially on a tear.

The Maroons pounded 13 hits and beat Whitefish 11-1 in five innings Friday night on Field No. 3 at Stodden Park. The win came just hours after the Maroons beat Billings Central 12-2, also in five innings.

The games were part of the first day of the two-day Laverne Combo Invitational tournament, which features 49 games on five fields in the Mining City.

“We had a great hitting day,” Butte Central coach Kelci Thatcher said. “Twenty-three runs in not even 10 innings. That’s the most I can remember we’ve hit.”

The hits are coming from up and down the lineup, too.

“I just told them, ‘I couldn’t be more proud of you,’” Thatcher said. ” One through nine is hitting.”

The non-conference win was the eighth straight for BC, which improved 13-5 on the season.

“It’s perfect timing,” said Thatcher, whose Maroons head to Anaconda for the Southwestern A Divisional tournament next week. “I feel like we’re peaking at the right tem. The girls are buying into it, and they all have confidence in one another. If they’re not playing, they’re cheering. They just have a great team chemistry going on, and I credit that to a lot of our success.”

The coach also praised her team defense, which was highlighted by nice plays from senior third baseman Rylee Green and sophomore second baseman Shawnee Hjelt in the nightcap.

“The last three games especially or defense looks like it’s finally comfortable,” Thatcher said. “Overall it’s the most relaxed I’ve seen them play.”

The 13 hits backed up McKenzie Gallagher, a freshman who got her first varsity start pitching. Gallagher scattered five singles and let her defense do the work behind her.

Freshman McKenzie Gallagher delivers a first-inning pitch Friday.

“Gallagher, she hits her spots,” Thatcher said. “She doesn’t have the speed like Mikayla (Boggss) or Teresa (Piazzola), but her ability to place the ball where it needs to be placed to get ground balls is phenomenal. That’s why we can throw here.”

Gallagher’s performance came after Boggs filled in the last two games for ace pitcher Teresa Piazzola, who is expected back by divisionals.

“I can’t say enough about Boggs,” Thatcher said. “She stepped up huge yesterday against Anaconda, and she had a huge day against Billings Central. They’re first in their conference.”

Friday, the Maroons gave Gallagher more than enough run support.

The big hit of Friday’s late game came from freshman first baseman Mollie Peoples, who drilled her first career varsity home run. It was a two-run jack to left-center field that extended BC’s lead to 7-1.

Freshman shortstop Taylor Wahl doubled in a 3-for-3 effort. She scored three runs. Sophomore catcher Kate Ossello also went 3-3, while Hjelt hit two singles to join Peoples with a two-hit game.

Peoples drove in three runs, and  senior Courtney Thomas hit a two-run single. Boggs and fellow senior Shelby Paffhausen each hit a double, and Paffhausen, Wahl, Sadie McLaughlin and Ossello each drove in a run.

The Bulldogs actually led the game in the first inning. Haley Harris hit an infield single and scored on an error.

Paffhausen, though, walked and took second on Wahl’s double. She tied the game on a ground out by Peoples.

Boggs then bounced the ball over the fence in left-center to put the Maroons on top for good.

BC will try to extend the winning streak Saturday, and it won’t be easy because they play a pair of perennial contenders.

The Maroons play Laurel at 12:30 p.m. before closing the tournament against Belgrade at 4. Both games will be on Stodden’s Field No. 3.

Maroons knock off Rams, 12-2

Maybe it was having ESP that produced ESPN highlights-like hitting efforts for Butte Central sophomore Shawnee Hjelt on Friday as the Maroons opened their stay in their own LaVerne Combo Invitational high school girls’ softball tournament.
Hjelt’s hitting, a 4-for-4 performance with two doubles, backed some standout pitching by senior Mikayla Boggs as the BC girls beat Billings Central 12-2 at Stodden Park in a game ended in the middle of the fifth inning by the 10-run difference rule.
The win was Butte Central’s seventh in a row. They team played Whitefish later in the day and is scheduled to go up against Laurel and Central A Conference leader Belgrade on Saturday in the 25-team Combo Invitational, which is being held on fields at Stodden Park, Copper Mountain Park and at the Longfellow Complex. All of the Maroons’ games are being played on Field No. 3 at Stodden Park.
“Absolutely, I had a big day at the plate,” Hjelt said while radiating smiles. “I was actually surprised, but really happy.”
She was the designated player and batted first in the Butte Central lineup. Her collection of hits included a single to left in the bottom of the first inning, a double to left in the second, and a line-drive infield hit off the glove of Billings Central pitcher Skyler Rockwell and a two-run double to left-center, both in the fourth inning.
The last double provided Butte Central with the winning margin needed to end the game early.
Finishing early was important, too, as the tournament had gotten behind schedule when lightning caused a one-hour, 10-minute game delay midway through the third inning.
The Maroons took a 5-1 advantage into the bottom of the fourth as Boggs had limited the Rams’ offensive opportunities and slugged a line-shot home run earlier. The senior right-hander has played much of the year as the No. 2 hurler for the Maroons, but a hip injury sidelined sophomore Teresa Piazzola, the usual starter.
Hjelt began the bottom of the fourth with her line drive that caromed off of Rockwell’s glove. Shelby Paffhausen followed with a single to right. Hjelt raced to third base on the hit and Paffhausen soon took second base on a steal.
Taylor Wahl then stroked a flyball to deep left field. It was dropped. Hjelt scored on the sacrifice fly and Paffhausen sped home on the error. Rockwell posted a pair of strikeouts before Rylee Green pounded a liner off the glove of Ram third baseman Sammy McNeely for an infield hit. Wahl scored on the shot. Boggs then reached on an error and Cassidy McGree walked to load the bases. Emily St. John beat out an infield hit that scored a run and kept the bags full. Hjelt then deliver her double into center field that rolled past the defender. Boggs’ courtesy runner, Courtney Thomas, and McGree tallied on the hit and St. John loped home on the error. The play gave the Maroons a 12-1 command before Billings Central got its next at-bats.
“The last one was a changeup, but I knew it was coming,” Hjelt said of the two-run double. “I had three balls and two strikes and I thought it would be a changeup.”
She was on it and mashed it.
Butte Central scored seven runs in the inning and sent 11 batters to the plate.
The Rams tried to rally in the fifth, but fell way short. Aubrey Walter reached on an one-out infield hit and MacKenzie Redman batted a grounder that was fielded in the infield. However, the throw was dropped on a fielder’s choice play and so the Rams had two runners on base with one out. Butte Central tried to pick Walter off third base, but the throw was wide and hopped into left-field foul ground. Walter scored.
Boggs, however, retired the next two Billings Central batters on a groundout and a flyout. Boggs struck out one and walked one in her win.
“It was different without Piazzola,” Hjelt said, agreeing that Boggs turned in a strong performance. “Our defense has been great and everybody is being aggressive at the plate. That helps.”
Butte Central took a 1-0 lead in the last of the first inning as Mollie Peoples clubbed a ground-rule double that hopped the center-field fence, driving in Hjelt, who had singled. The Rams tied the score in the top of the second as Molly Day accepted Boggs’ only walk of the day, then scored two outs later on a base hit to left by McNeely.
The Maroons responded with three runs in their half of the inning. Boggs led off with her blast over the center-field fence. Two outs later, Hjelt doubled to left, then scored as Paffhausen hit a single that bounced past the Billings Central fielder. Paffhausen reached third on the error and came home when Wahl whacked a single to center field.
Corbyn Holm hammered a triple to left-center field to start the bottom of the third inning after the lightning delay. Billings Central center fielder Alison Walter appeared to injure her leg on the plant and pivot as she corralled the ball and tried to throw it to the infield. She needed to be helped off the field and was replaced by Josie Snyder.
Boggs lofted a one-out sacrifice fly to left field that brought Holm home.
Every player in the Maroons’ batting order recorded at least one hit in the 14-hit attack. Paffhausen and Wahl knocked two apiece to back Hjelt’s four.
Aubrey Walter registered two hits for Billings Central. Rockwell pitched the distance. She struck out two batters and walked one. All six of the Rams’ hits were singles.
