CLASS 2A FOREST PARK SOFTBALL SEMISTATE: Pioneers fall to South Spencer, 13-1

Providence collects only two hits

FERDINAND — In the Class 2A Forest Park Semistate semifinal on Saturday, Providence fell to Class 2A No. 10 South Spencer in six innings, 13-1.

Providence struck early and led 1-0 after the first inning. Jordyn Stengel drove in Marlee Karem with an RBI single.

South Spencer (25-5) quickly answered Providence and scored three runs of its own in the top of the second.

South Spencer controlled the game from then on out.

The Rebels scored two more runs in the fifth and added eight more in the sixth to end the game by the 10-run mercy rule.

Providence was outmatched at the dish on Saturday. The Pioneers only connected for two hits and had two baserunners. The South Spencer pitching staff did a good job of keeping the Pioneer bats at bay, striking out nine of the 20 batters faced.

Karem and Stengel each collected a hit. Providence starter Sierra Collett was the losing pitcher. In three innings of work, Collett gave up eight runs (all earned) on 10 hits with two walks and no strikeouts.

Providence finished the season with a 20-13 record. South Spencer won Saturday’s championship game over ninth-ranked Indianapolis Scecina, 7-1. The Rebels will play Southmont in the Class 2A state championship game next Saturday at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis.
