NEW BREMEN 64, FORT RECOVERY 55
COLDWATER — The New Bremen Cardinals survived a rough second quarter and made their free throws down the stretch to advance in the Division IV sectional tournament with a 64-55 victory over the Fort Recovery Indians at Coldwater. The Cardinals (13-8) will advance to the sectional championship on Friday at 8:00 against the Ada Bulldogs. Carson Manger led the Cardinals with 21 points and nine rebounds and Nolan Fox had 14 points.
The St. Marys Roughriders softball team got off to a rough start giving up nine runs in the first three innings against the Coldwater Cavaliers, but the Riders never died and came back to tie the game at 10-10.
The Riders just couldn’t get over the hump, though.
The Riders gave up a run in the top of the seventh to give the Cavaliers an 11-10 victory Thursday at K. C. Geiger Park.
NEW BREMEN — The New Bremen Cardinals softball team recovered from a shaky start and had an eight-run fifth inning to come back and defeat the Marion Local Flyers 15-12 in a MAC contest Monday at New Bremen.
“We gave them a five spot in the first inning,” Cardinals head coach Craig Griesdorn. “But we responded with three in the bottom of the first. They came back with six but we came back from an 11-3 deficit and the reason why we did that was that we cleaned up our errors and we put the ball in play.”
