lden-Conger made it two in a row over the Wolverines with an 8-1 triumph in an opening round sub-section tournament game at Mankato Thursday.

It ended the season for the Wolverines at 12-9 and ended the Glenville-Emmons coaching career of Bob Staska, who is leaving the school district for another position in Northern Minnesota.

&uot;We just didn’t get the bats going at the end of the year,&uot; said Staska.

The Knights, who improved to 10-10, had them going quite well Thursday, rapping out 15 hits. All eight of their runs were earned.

Kendra Mathiason led the onslaught, going 3-for-5. Nicole Bute was 2-for-3, Patty Boettcher 2-for-4, Tana Reindal 2-for-4, Erin Bremseth 2-for-4. Stef Ausen, Molly Wasmoen, Mackenzie Johnson and Steph Lackey each had one hit.

Lackey went the distance on the mound for Alden-Conger, pitching a three-hitter. She walked two and struck out seven.

Jill Delger pitched the first 3 2/3 innings for the Wolverines and took the loss. Jessica Claussen finished the game.

Katie Kimble, Megan Avery and Jill Yost had G-E’s hits.

The Knights play Saturday at 10 a.m. at Caswell Park in North Mankato.
