MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield softball team played one of its better games of the season, but Wausau West’s Sammy Laatsch got in the way of a Tigers’ victory.

Laatsch scattered eight hits in a complete-game pitching effort, had a pair of hits and scored twice to lift West to a 3-1 win over Marshfield in a Wisconsin Valley Conference game Tuesday at Lee Field at the Marshfield Fairgrounds.

On the mound, Laatsch struck out eight, didn’t walk a batter and worked out of jams in four different innings stranding four Tigers in scoring position.

At the plate, she had a pair of singles and used instinctive base running to score twice.

With the game still scoreless in the third, Laatsch led off with a single and went to second on a groundout. She stole third base and scored when an errant throw went into leftfield.

West made it 2-0 in the fourth as Korey Boehm reached on an error, stole second and scored on a two-out single by Nikki Volm.

In the fifth, Laatsch again led off with a single, stole second, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a groundout to give the Warriors (4-7, 2-2 Wisconsin Valley Conference) a 3-0 lead.

“They came out fighting and played hard and we made a game of it,” Marshfield coach Mike Voss said. “We put some pressure on them and they made the plays when they had to, where we those two mistakes (errors) and that cost us two runs.

“I thought we came up with some plays. Two weeks ago, I don’t know if we would have got out of some of those situations. They’re working at it and learning.”

After Marshfield stranded a runner on second in the second inning and one on third in the fourth, it finally came through with a run in the sixth.

Autumn Slowiak slapped a single, moved to second on a single by Miranda Baierl and scored on an infield single by Sara Sturomski.

Laatsch got out of the mess with a groundout, then stranded a runner on third in the seventh. Katie Treankler led off the inning with a triple but stayed at third as Laatsch earned her eighth strikeout and got a pair of groundball outs.

“We’re definitely starting to swing the bats better – (Laatsch) is one of the better pitchers in the conference,” Voss said. “We hit her pretty well. There were a few times when we struck out looking, but that happens.”

Freshman Caitlin Kozik gave up seven hits and walk, and struck out four in a solid effort for the Tigers (2-6, 1-3 Wisconsin Valley Conference).

“She kept them off balance,” Voss said of Kozik. “She did a good job, worked out of some tough jams and she’s been getting tougher and tougher as the year goes along. She’s matured a lot from where she came from in the beginning of the season.”

Marshfield plays at D.C. Everest on Thursday and hosts Hudson for a nonconference doubleheader on Saturday.

SHEBOYGAN – Darian Molter scored four times to lead the Marshfield girls soccer team to a 6-0 smashing of Sheboygan Christian in the consolation championship of the Sheboygan South Invitational on Saturday.

The Tigers finished the day 2-0-1, improving to 5-2-1 on the season.

Marshfield tied West Allis Hale 2-2 and defeated West De Pere 2-0 in its other two games.

Molter scored at the 12:27 mark off an assist from Abby Brock to give Marshfield an early lead against Hale.

Hale responded with a pair of goals in the first half and held the 2-1 lead until Emily Wolfe scored for the Tigers with just 20 seconds remaining to force a shootout. The game is recorded as a tie for teams’ records, but a shootout was held for tournament standings purposes.

Hale won the shootout 4-3.

Alison Gruen scored both Marshfield goals in the 2-0 win over West De Pere. Molter assisted on both.

The Tigers held a 6-0 advantage in corner kicks and goalkeepers Jala Zahn and RaeAnn Hovendick registered one save each in the shutout.

Molter scored four goals in the first 12:17 of the win over an undermanned Sheboygan Christian team to put the Tigers in control.

Maddie Smith and Mardie Shanahan each had a goal and an assist, and walker Guzowski had two assists for the Tigers.

“Overall it was a great tournament for the girls,” Marshfield coach Steve Lindner said. “They played well and to play at a high level in the current stretch of our schedule is crucial. Our confidence is very high and the trust they all have in each other only enhances their ability to play as a team.”

The Tigers (2-2 WVC) return to Wisconsin Valley Conference action with a home game at Griese Park on Thursday against Stevens Point, which is a perfect 4-0 in the WVC. Game time is 5 p.m.

MARSHFIELD – The Spencer softball team went 2-1 Saturday at the Marshfield Invitational.

The Rockets lost to La Crosse Logan 16-7 and defeated Marshfield 11-1 and Tomahawk 11-5 to improve to 8-2 this season.

Marshfield also lost to Tomahawk, 14-2, and beat Logan 6-5 with a two-run seventh inning. Logan edged Tomahawk 8-7 in the other game to tie Spencer for first at the tournament with a 2-1 record.

Against Logan, Spencer led 6-0 before Logan erupted for 13 unearned runs in the fifth and sixth innings.

Spencer committed eight errors in the loss.

Marisa Johnson and Tynae Phillips each had two hits.

Spencer scored seven runs in the first inning of its win over Marshfield. Krystal Weier had a single and triple and Sam Nikolay scored twice and knocked in two runs for the Rockets.

The Rockets used a nine-run second inning to blow past Tomahawk.

Spencer smashed 12 hits in the win from nine different players. Phillips, Weier and Dani Johnson each had two hits, and Phillips drove in three runs and Brooke Kettleborough, Nikolay and Weier each had two RBIs.

“Today was a great experience for us,” Spencer coach Jason Gorst said. “We got to play some much larger schools and we did pretty well. Our pitchers were great and we showed we could hit good pitching as well. We have to continue to improve defensively, but our girls didn’t hang their heads and kept playing hard. I am very proud of them.”

Spencer plays at Gilman on Tuesday.

Marshfield was dominated by Tomahawk 14-2 but bounced back with a 6-5 win over La Crosse Logan.

In the win over the Rangers, Marshfield rallied with two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning. Autumn Slowiak singled to leadoff the inning, went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Miranda Baierl, and scored on a double by Taylor Hasz. Sara Sturomski followed with an RBI single to give the Tigers the victory.

D.C. Everest edges Marshfield girls soccer on snowy night

WESTON – D.C. Everest scored a pair of goals in the first half and held on to a 2-1 win over Marshfield in girls soccer action on a snowy night at D.C. Everest Middle School.

The game started in rain, which later turned to snow making for tough field conditions and a muddled game.

Maddie Mittelsteadt and McKenzie Grallo scored goals in the first half to put Everest up 2-0.

Darian Molter scored off an assist from Abby Brock 2:05 into the second half, but the snowy field conditions impacted the game from there on and neither team would score again.

Marshfield falls to 3-2 and 2-2 in the Wisconsin Valley Conference, while Everest improves to 5-2-1 and 3-0 in the Valley.

“Both teams traded opportunities the rest of the way and the heavy wet snow made transitions almost impossible,” Marshfield coach Steve Lindner said. “At times it looked like a snowball as the ball accumulated snow as it traveled to the next player.”

Marshfield goalkeeper Jala Zahn had 17 saves to keep it close.

“Jala Zahn had a super game in net as she played her best game by far in poor conditions,” Lindner said. “To be a goalie on a night like this is tough, but she rose to the challenge and we cannot say enough of her game.”

Marshfield plays at the Sheboygan South Invitational on Saturday and returns to Wisconsin Valley Conference action next Thursday when it hosts Stevens Point.
