Abraham Lincoln, jump-started by Rilee Filip’s two-run first-inning home run, beat Sioux City West 10-0 on Monday night in Missouri River Conference softball.
The game ended on Bri Schiller’s walk-off, two-out triple in the fifth inning. Pitcher Holly Hansen, an eighth-grader, held West to four hits.
“Well, we started off well,” A.L. coach Candi Hughes said. “We had a little more energy than we normally do.
“I think we were the better team and proved it tonight,” she said. “We have been in some other games, but tonight we were able to prove it.”
She said the return of Filip, an all-conference soccer goaltender, to full-time softball has helped the team.
“As much as we love and support the soccer team, it’s great to have her back full-time. She’s an energy person and a positive person and a great teammate.”
Another good sign, she said, is that her team scored a number of two-out runs.
“Even though we haven’t been winning, we have been getting better,” she said.
