Lady Dutchmen Walk Off Win Over Luverne

By Doug Kroh – The Lady Dutchmen had their home opener on Monday, April 24, hosting the Luverne Cardinals.  The weather started out to be a nice afternoon for softball. The temperature was in the mid 60’s with a light wind. Being from Minnesota means give it a few minutes and it will change.

By the third inning the temperature dropped 10 degrees and the wind increased to the upper teens. The wind appears to have impacted a few pop flies, but otherwise the girls hunkered down to play softball.

The Cardinals jumped out to an early lead with a few solid hits and a Dutchmen error. After Luverne scored a run, Liz Buckridge settled into a grove and returned the next two batters to the dugout to end the top half of the inning.
