Hayfield takes fourth, L/P takes eighth at Hayfield softball invite

The Lyle/Pacelli and Hayfield softball teams both finished the Hayfield Invite with a loss on Saturday.

L/P remained winless when it lost to Hayfield 10-4, fell to Pine Island 8-1, and lost to Mabel/Canton 7-3.

The Athletics (0-13 overall) trailed Pine Island just 1-0, before they committed four errors and allowed five runs in the frame.

L/P got a double in from Dani Felten in the loss to M/C, but it wasn’t enough as the game was called after six innings due to time restraints. M/C scored twice in the bottom of the sixth to clinch the victory.

Hayfield (2-14 overall) nearly came back to win against Windom, but the Vikings had to settle for fourth place.

Hannah Wiltgen knocked in two runs with a double and Abby Blanchard singled in a run to make it 6-4 in the sixth. Hayfield added another run on a Windom error to make it a one-run game but Jaide Ryks struck out with a runner on second and the Vikings never threatened in the seventh.

Hayfield lost to Blooming Prairie 12-2 and beat L/P 10-4.
