May 15, 2014The University Liggett girls' softball team got back to its winning ways last weekend, beating Allen Park Inter-City Baptist 12-2.
The win came after an 11-2 loss at Huron Valley Lutheran, which was the Knights' first loss in the Michigan Independent Athletic Conference in a couple of seasons.
"The girls made the plays defensively against Inter-City Baptist and were ready to play," head coach Ted Alpert said.
Senior Angelia Evangelista and junior Zarine Minwalla were each 3-for-3 to lead the Knights in the win. Evangelista walked once, scored four runs and stole two bases, while Minwalla scored a run and had a big two-run single in the first inning with two outs.
Junior Taylor Slayton drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double in the fifth inning, which ended the game.
Junior Kacie Wuthrich earned the win on the mound, going four innings, scattering two hits and not giving up a run. Minwalla pitched one inning and gave up a two-run homer.
In the loss to Huron Valley, Evangelista was 3-for-4 with a run scored and two stolen bases, and sophomore Anna Majewski had a home run.
Minwalla suffered the loss, going six innings and giving up 10 hits, six earned runs, one walk and one strikeout.
Liggett also crushed Inter-City Baptist 14-0 earlier in the week to set its MIAC record at 6-1 and overall mark to 13-4.
