Sunday, Sept. 18

 

By a 13-12 score, Valentine edged Ainsworth Sunday at the Prairie Club to regain the Rolling Rock in the annual match-play golf tournament.

In the event pitting 10 golfers from the Ainsworth and Valentine clubs, Ainsworth jumped out to an early lead, winning the scramble matches by a score of 3-1/2 to 1-1/2.

Valentine stormed back in the alternate shot format, winning four of the five points to take a 5-1/2 to 4-1/2 point lead.

Valentine increased its lead to 8-1/2 to 6-1/2 in the best ball format, scoring three points to Ainsworth’s two.

Ainsworth rallied in the singles. With the final two groups finishing in the dark, Ainsworth scored 5-1/2 points in the 10 singles matches to 4-1/2 points for Valentine, but the 4-1/2 points was enough for Valentine to regain the rock with a one-point win.

Malcolm def. Yutan, 6-5 in eight innings.

 

For the second straight day, Ainsworth dropped a one-run decision in the Class C Senior Legion State Baseball Tournament.

Alma pitcher Ryan Soderholm allowed four hits and one run in a complete game, with Parker Janicek’s two-run double with two outs in the second inning proved to be the difference in a 2-1 Mudcat win that ended the season for Post 79.

With the bases loaded and two out in the second inning, Janicek roped a double down the left-field line off Ainsworth starter Riggin Temple, plating Wyatt Gibson and Ty Heft for a 2-0 Alma lead.

Ainsworth answered with a run in the top of the third. After reaching on an error and advancing to third, Post 79 right fielder Jacob Fernau stole home as part of a double steal, with Fernau breaking for the plate as Alma tried to throw out Sawyer Williams at second base.

Alma threatened again in the fourth, loading the bases with two outs. After Temple fell behind 3-0 to Levi Jester, Post 79 coach Kevin Martin brought in Hunter Martin to relieve Temple. Facing a 3-0 count with nowhere to put Jester, Martin fired three straight strikes to get Jester swinging and end the threat.

Martin, after tossing a complete game Saturday in a 4-3 loss to Yutan, worked 2-1/3 innings of scoreless relief, allowing just one hit.

Ainsworth put the leadoff hitters on in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings, but could not push the tying run across against Soderholm, who struck out five in the complete game victory.

Temple took the loss for Ainsworth, allowing just the two runs on four hits in his 3-2/3 innings of work. He walked five and struck out four.

Ainsworth ends the season with an 11-8 record.

Ainsworth starter Hunter Martin and Yutan pitcher Jerrad O’Malley were locked in a scoreless duel through three innings before Yutan capitalized on an Ainsworth error to start the fourth frame. Yutan picked up RBI singles from shortstop Brandon O’Hara and left-fielder Austin Fisher to take a 2-0 lead.
