Sterling pitchers cool Tabor softball hitters

The Tabor softball team lost a pair of close home games to Sterling Wednesday, 2-0 and 4-2.

In the first game, the Bluejays managed only three hits, but Tabor pitcher Jennie Ewertt was up to the task, shutting out Sterling for five innings.

The Warriors won the game with a run in the sixth inning on a pair of consecutive doubles and one run in the seventh.

Misty Collins had two of Tabor’s three hits, both singles, in three at-bats.

In the second game, Sterling erupted for three runs in the second inning against Ewertt on four back-to-back hits.

Tabor countered with a run in the bottom of the fourth. Collins was hit by a pitch, stole second, went to third on a wild pitch and then scored on Iva Werth’s single.

After Sterling went ahead 4-1 in the sixth, Tabor came back with its second run. Sara Janzen reached on an error, advanced on Collins’ singled and scored on an error.

With the losses, Tabor falls to 3-7 in the KCAC and 7-20 overall. The Bluejays competed in a tournament in Lamoni, Iowa, over the weekend, but results were not available at press time.

Coming-Tabor plays two games at home this week.

On Wednesday they host Kansas Wesleyan at 5 p.m., then are scheduled to play Bartlesville (Okla.) Wesleyan on Saturday at a time to be announced.
