Wolfpack edges Sentinel, 5-4

Apr. 12—Zoey Allen's two-out RBI single broke a 4-4 tie in the fifth inning, and Glacier held on to beat visiting Missoula Sentinel 5-4 in Western AA softball Thursday.

Allen's hit scored courtesy runner Taelor Holt, who came into the game after Paishance Haller drew a one-out walk. Karley Allen's single moved Holt to third and set up the go-ahead base hit by Allen's younger sister.

Ella Farrell went the distance in the circle for Glacier (3-1), bouncing back from Tuesday's loss at Missoula Big Sky. She scattered eight hits, one walk and one hit batter and struck out seven.

Farrell also drew a bases-loaded walk for an RBI in the first, just ahead of a pitching change by Sentinel. Piper Whitman threw 5 2-3 innings of relief for the Spartans, and also hit two doubles.

Cazz Rankosky's two-run single in the third inning staked the Wolfpack to a 4-1 lead, but Sentinel got two unearned runs in the fourth inning and an RBI single from Nina Sammoury that scored Kennedy Dypwick in the fifth, tying it at 4-all.
