The Trenton Lady Bulldogs looked sharp in the opening game of a three-team softball jamboree played Tuesday night at the Ebbe Sports Complex.
Senior right-hander Mallory Hooyman shutout the Putnam County Lady Midgets, giving up only a scratch hit in the top of the fourth inning, while the Lady Bulldog bats provided a number of line drive hits, in a 3-0 win.
Trenton scored twice in the bottom of the second inning, with a Katerina Black single driving in Whitley Richman, and a Megan Lynch laser to left sending home Ally Ockenfels.
Playing the full four innings, Trenton added a run in its final at-bat, with a Hooyman double chasing home Tenna Roberts.
Trenton's scrimmage against Brookfield ended in a 1-1 tie after 4 innings. Brookfield's lone run came on a two-out homer in the first. Trenton Junior Daryian Otto shut down the Brookfield offense after that, allowing only two hits and striking out seven over four innings.
Trenton's run came in the third inning when Jayden Roeder (Row-durr) led off with a single, was bunted to second by Shayla Woodside, advanced to third on a McKinley Hurley single and scored on a wild pitch. Tenna Roberts added a single and Otto had a double.Â
In the middle game played at Griffin Field, Brookfield dominated Putnam County, winning by a final score of 6-0.
