Weber State softball completes series sweep over North Dakota

Wednesday , April 11, 2018 - 10:16 PM

Kirtlyn Bohling was at it again Wednesday.

The senior pitcher threw all seven innings, striking out seven and allowing just four hits to lead Weber State softball to a 4-1 win over North Dakota, claiming a three-game series sweep in Ogden.

Freshman first baseman Ashlyn Visser led the Wildcat offense with two RBIs, driving in runs in the first and fifth innings for WSU’s first and last runs of the game.

Senior Molly Horne notched an RBI double in the top of the third that brought in sophomore Landi Hawker.

Like in games one and two, the Wildcats took advantage of having runners on the corners, sneaking in a run when senior McKinley Brinkerhoff stole home while the defense was distracted with sophomore Courtney Petska stealing second base in the fourth inning.

Bohling pitched a complete game in the series opener Tuesday and threw 1 2/3 innings in that day’s second game for a save.

She struck out 23 Hawks in 15 2/3 innings of the series.

Weber State (20-17, 8-4 Big Sky) improves to first place in the Big Sky with the sweep. WSU will make the short drive to Salt Lake on Monday for a doubleheader against the Utah Utes beginning at 4 p.m.
