Storm dominate Eagles

Siren/Webster Storm Emma Zmuda swings at a pitch during the Storm-Unity game last Tuesday, won by the Storm by a 4-2 margin.

BALSAM LAKE—The Siren/Webster Storm continued their dominance over the Unity Eagles this season as they posted a tough 4-2 win last Tuesday at the Unity field.

“After a tough loss yesterday, this was a really good game to come into,” said Storm coach Tina Karsten.

“It was good to see the girls come together and battle. It was good to see the bases loaded and the girls find a way to get out of that situation.”

The Storm got two runs in their half of the second inning after going scoreless in the first. Ellyn Lindquist walked. Daisy Dorn singled. Maddie Nichols also walked. Lindquist and Dorn got home on an Eagle error.

Another run was added in the third inning as Emma Zmuda doubled and came home on a ground out play.

Unity score a run in their half of the third to cut the deficit to 3-1.

The Storm got back that run in the top of the fifth when with two out, Liz Carroll was issued a base on balls. Alayna Johnson singled her around to third. Carroll came home moments later and the score was 4-1.

“We left a couple of people on base and it would have been nice to have them come in,” continued the coach.

Unity threatened in the bottom of the seventh. A walk and a double scored one run but a ground out ended the threat and also the game.

“All in all, it's a good time for things to come together.

“The program is improving and we have put a lot of work into this, so it's ice to see it come together. We're excited for Thursday when we travel to play Barron,” the coach concluded.
