Notre Dame posts quick victory over Perryville
Notre Dame's softball team showed why it is the No. 1 seed in Class 3, District 2 with a mercy-rule 13-3 win over district foe Perryville Wednesday in five innings at home.
The Pirates jumped in front with three runs off Bulldog starter Robyn Beel in the top of the first inning. After Beel recorded a pair of outs in the second Notre Dame turned the game over to ace Lindsay Reinagel and the Pirates' bats went silent from there.
Notre Dame tied in the bottom of the second with two runs and broke the game open with seven in the third. Whitney Ostendorf's two-run home run highlighted the inning.
The Bulldogs had 15 hits including seven extra basehits. Alana Weissmueller led the Bulldogs with a 3-for-3 game.
Reinagel allowed one hit in 3 1/3 innings for her ninth win. Notre Dame's three runs allowed were the most it has allowed all season.
