Crusaders knock off New London

HTC gets wins over Tigers Tuesday, Keota on Saturday.


WEST POINT – The Holy Trinity girls won their second game in a row with a 12-2 win over New London Tuesday at South Park.
The Crusaders gave up just one run in the fourth and one in the fifth behind the three-hit pitching of Sydney Jarvis. The freshman struck out four and walked just one while allowing two earned runs.
Holy Trinity put up four runs in the bottom of the third all with one out. Junior Emily Ross doubled and Brooklyn Todd worked a walk to put two on. Incoming freshman Morgan Krogmeier doubled to center scoring both Ross and Todd for a 3-0 lead. Freshman Ellie Hellman then added another doubled to left scoring Krogmeier. The Lady Tigers tried to get Krogmeier at home allowing Hellman to advance to third on the throw.
Kat DiPrima singled to keep the rally going and freshman Kara Lake plated Hellman on a fielder’s choice before a fly out ending the inning with the Lady Crusaders up 5-0.
The Crusaders then put the game all but out of reach in the bottom of the fifth when Krogmeier opened the frame with a triple to right. After a strike out, DiPrima singled and moved up two bases on passed balls. Freshman Elizabeth Griffin walked, Isabella Behne walked, Jarvis walked and Ross was hit by a pitch making the score 11-0 courtesy of several passed balls. Todd then walked as the Tigers pitching woes continued before Krogmeier singled scoring another run for the 12-2 lead invoking the 10-run rule after five innings.
On Saturday, the Crusaders got a 15-3 win over Keota after a quick start. HTC scored three in the first, three in the second and seven in the third. Jarvis and Ross both homered for Holy Trinity.
Jarvis got the win in the circle giving up eight hits and three runs all earned while fanning seven and walking one. Jarvis and Ross both had three hits and four RBI each. Behne and Krogmeier each had multi-hit games.
Holy Trinity moves to 2-3 in the SEI Superconference and 4-6 overall. The Crusaders will take on Class 2A No. 15 Central Lee on Thursday in what will now be a doubleheader at Donnellson and will finish the week with a single game at Van Buren County.
