Break a tie with Alexandria to earn the win

The Albany girls softball team used a four-run seventh inning to break a tie and then shut down the Cardinals in their half of the inning to win 10-6 at Alexandria High School in Alexandria.

The Huskies took a 3-0 lead in the top of the first, but Alexandria came back in the third to go ahead 5-3 in the April 14 non-conference game.

Two runs in the fourth by Albany tied the game at 5-5, but a run in the fifth gave the Cardinals a 6-5 lead.

Albany knotted the game again in the sixth with a run, setting up its seventh inning rally.

Allie Thelen had the hot bat for the Huskies, going 3-for-4 with two doubles. She drove in three runs.

Alyssa Sand’s two hits included a home run.

Also getting two hits were Callie Holthaus, Lauren Nett and Sophia Schiffler. One of Schiffler’s hits was a double.
