Softball roundup: Paynesville shuts down ACGC, 11-0
Prep softball report for Monday, May 9, 2022, in west central Minnesota. Behind ninth-grader Maddy McNab, Bulldogs earn a conference win
PAYNESVILLE — The Paynesville softball team got a stellar pitching performance from Maddy McNab on Monday.
It helped the Bulldogs beat the Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City Falcons 11-0 in six innings.
The Central Minnesota Conference victory pushed Paynesville’s record to 8-7.
McNab, a ninth-grader, went the distance. She struck out eight and walked two, allowing two hits.
“She’s really starting to come on as a freshman,” Paynesville head coach Zach Nelson said. “She throws the ball a lot like my other two pitchers, but I think it comes in there a little different. “Her control’s been great. It helps that we can put our best defense behind her.”
Kianna Roeske went 1-for-1 with a triple, three runs and two RBI. Kaydence Roeske was 2-for-2 with a double, a run and three RBI for the Bulldogs.
Haley Wilner and Taylor Hoekstra each had hits for ACGC.
Nelson credited the Paynesville baseball team with helping get the softball field ready for play Monday. Nelson said the field was under water at 3:30 p.m. after rain all morning. By 4:15 p.m., it was ready to go.
Paynesville has a CMC doubleheader scheduled for Thursday at Kimball.
“I think they’ve got decent pitching, but they haven’t hit a whole lot,” Nelson said. “With the exception of one game against Maple Lake, with McNab pitching we haven’t been giving up a lot of runs. I think we may have a good late run in us here. I think we can get a middle seed in our section. We could make a run.”
ACGC plays a doubleheader Tuesday at Holdingford.
