SOFTBALL: Lady Knights end with loss

LAWRENCE PARK – Eisenhower’s softball season came to a close Tuesday with a 15-2 setback at the hands of playoff-bound Iroquois.

The Knights finish the season with a record of 2-12 and suffered two “mercy rule” losses to the Lady Braves this season. Prior to Tuesday’s game, Iroquois defeated Eisenhower 16-1 in a game played April 23 at Eisenhower High School.

Iroquois (15-4) batted just four times Tuesday, but put up crooked numbers in three of those innings, scoring five times in the first, three times in the second and seven more times in the fourth.

Eisenhower plated both of its runs in a fourth inning that was highlighted by Natasha Morrison’s RBI groundout. The Knights finished the game with three hits, including one each from Haylie Birt, Kristen Wagner and Ashley Barnett.

“It’s sad to see Kelsey Repke and Tasha’s (Natasha Morrison\’s) last game, but they played hard and were dependable for us,” said Eisenhower coach R.J. Williams.
