First time starter Mallory Malokowski was a bit shaky early on, but settled down and pitched a good game for the Jackets in the season opener last Friday. Unfortunately, the offense didnt give her much support in a 5-1 loss to Menahga at Arvig Park.
Menahgas first two batters singled in the top of the first and scored, giving the visitors a quick 2-0 lead. They added to that lead in the top of the third, thanks in large part to a two-run home run, to go ahead 5-0.
Perham broke through in the bottom of the fourth. Dani Stoll led off with a walk, then promptly stole second and third. She scored on a RBI groundout from Alyssa Stafki for the Jackets only run.
Malikowski cruised through the Menahga line-up after the rough third inning. She allowed just one hit over the final four innings and finished the game with six strikeouts and just one walk.
Stoll finished 1-for-2 with the walk and three stolen basses. Kayla Speicher, Brandi Cresap and Lauri Sczygiel each had one hit.
Perham hadnt practiced on the softball field before their game last Friday. They will get plenty of practice time on it before their next game, which isnt until April 20, when they travel to Glyndon to take on D-G-F.
