DROHNER, KLUCK COMBINE FOR NO HITTER AS SPASH BEATS WEST

Stevens Point– Winning softball games in the Wisconsin Valley Conference is anything but easy– just don’t tell SPASH’s talented young pitchers Aubrey Drohner and Shaylee Kluck.

After helping the Panthers pull out a 10-5 win over Merrill on Tuesday, SPASH’s dynamic duo Drohner and Kluck combined for a no hitter against Wausau West to lift SPASH to a 10-0 win in five innings.

Drohner pitched four innings, while Kluck came on in relief in the final frame and handcuffed the Warriors’ batters to preserve the win.

Drohner struck out five, while Kluck recorded three strikeouts.

Offensively, both teams struggled to get much going in the early innings and the game was tied 0-0 heading in to the bottom of the fourth.  That’s when SPASH’s offense erupted for seven runs and followed that up with three runs in the fifth.

According to SPASH coach Tom Drohner, the Panthers came out flat offensively, but managed to manufacture some intensity as the game progressed.

“We came in early in the game expecting to win,” Drohner said.  ”We’ve got to come in with a certain intensity level, and I don’t think we had it initially.  We were just kind of going through the motions, especially offensively.  Defensively we played fine and we got some pretty good pitching.  But later on, offensively, we caught fire in the fourth inning and I liked how involved we were as a team and how we approached it later in the game.”

Drohner noted a key hit by Hannah Worzella, which, he said, helped to break the ice for SPASH.

In all, SPASH had nine hits in the game.

With two conference wins under their belts, the Panthers have some momentum heading into a tournament this weekend, where they will face some stiff competition in Westosha Central, Chippewa Falls and Lakeville, Minnesota.

“It’s going to be a good test to see where we’re at,” Drohner said.  ”We’ve got a good group of seniors, but we’ve got a really good nucleus of young players also who can help us out.  Hopefully we’ll figure things out and our goal come playoff time is to be tougher than nails.”
