The Sturgeon Bay softball team opened their season with two games at Riverside Park in Green Bay on Monday. The Clippers beat Green Bay West 10-4 in the first game as Hailey Benesh (WP), Jackie Herlache and Molly Bordeau all pitched. Natalie Marchant, Paige Kramer, Emilie Jorns-Frisque and Rachel Miller all had 2 hits while Marissa Ehlers doubled and Benesh tripled.
Sturgeon Bay and Green Bay East ended in a 6-6 tie after 8 innings in the 2nd game. Bordeau and Benesh pitched while Jorns-Frisque doubled twice and added a triple. The Red Devils loaded the bases with nobody out in the bottom of the 8th but the Clippers escaped and the game was called because of darkness. Green Bay East is scheduled to play Southern Door on Tuesday.
