Jacket softball earns split with Panthers

The Perham softball team blanked Park Rapids in the second game of a doubleheader 2-0 behind the arm of Krista Januszewski.

Januszewski struck out six Panthers walking only one.

"We have to make sure to get our mindsets on target from the first pitch," Head Coach Jill Walter said. "We did that in game two and were able to get a couple of runs. We need to continue to capitalize with base runners on and come up with some timely hits."

Park Rapids won a close game 5-4 in the opener.

"We knew that Park Rapids was going to be a good team," Walter said. "We weren't mentally ready for them in the first inning and the result after that inning was three runs in their favor."

The opener was a tight game with little to no errors, according to Walter.

Steph Miller went 2-4 with two doubles and two RBI; Kaila Formanek went 2-4 with an RBI,

Januszewski struck out eight and walked four taking the loss.

Tiana Lynne reached safely at the plate in game two going 2-2 with a walk, Januszewski hit a double in three attempts scoring a run and knocking one in. Natalie Wierbos scored the other Jacket run going 1-4 in the game.
