Runs aplenty: Moose Jaw U14 Ice score 42 in doubleheader sweep of Lumsden

Ice take 17-2 victory in opener, follow with 25-4 win in nightcap at Optimist Park
Another night, another two commanding wins for the Moose Jaw U14 Ice.

And this time, it was complete dominance.

The Ice took a 17-2 victory over the Lumsden Cubs in the opening contest and followed with a 25-4 win in the nightcap at Optimist Park.

Ice 17, Lumsden 2

With the Ice finding themselves in a competitive 2-2 battle through the first three innings, the squad held a brief team gathering before heading to the plate for their at bats in the fourth.

It paid immediate dividends.

The Ice would score four runs that inning, tack on the maximum seven runs in the fifth and go on to their 15-run win.

Aubrey Clarke kicked off what would turn into an outstanding night, reaching base four times and scoring three runs. Ashley Breitkreuz also reached base three times and scored a pair of runs, with every player on the team crossing the plate at least once.

Peyton Mengel pitched the first three innings, allowing two runs on three hits and striking out five, while Haily Molde went took over and retired the side in order the next two frames, striking out three. Kensington Demassi closed things out, giving up a one hit and striking out two.

Things were close after the first inning even through the Ice scored the maximum seven runs while giving up a single out, as Lumsden quickly responded with four runs on four hits.

That would be the end of the good news for the visitors, though, as Moose Jaw would tack on six in the second and another three in the third to lead 16-4, and the route was on.

Clarke was right back at it, going 2-for-3, reaching base four times and scoring four runs. Mengel was just as effective at the top of the order, reaching base five times on four walks and also crossing the plate four times. Waverly Demassi contributed three runs to the cause.

All told, the Ice would walk 15 times and record 12 hits in game two.

Callie Klemenz got the start in the circle and settled down nicely after the first inning, not allowing another run and striking out six before Ava Unser closed things out, striking out eight and walking a pair.

The Ice are back in action for another pair of doubleheaders on Friday night and Sunday afternoon.
