RIGHT AT HOME — Kendra Ewer is behind the plate in Milo as the SeDoMoCha Middle School Eagles face the Penquis Valley Patriots during a softball game on April 30.

    In the Penquis game the Eagles did a great job on defense only allowing  one run but the Eagles offense got off to a slow start.  The Penquis defense was solid stranding several Eagle base runners throughout the game.
    Starting pitcher for the Eagles was seventh-grader Jenna Clukey. She had a great outing striking out 10 of the 13 batters she faced without giving up any walks. Catching for the Eagles was Kendra Ewer who did a great job keeping the ball away from the backstop.  
    In the infield the Eagles starters were Brianna Adkins at first base, Becca Anderson at second with Grace Bickford at shortstop and Alli Bourget at third. In the outfield was Maci Poulin in left, Makayla Mccorrison in center and Kiara Prescott in right. Coach Anderson made substitutions later in the game putting in Abbi Bourget as pitcher, Jenna Clukey on first, Cassie Panciera on third, Mariah Poulin  at shortstop, Kylie Dow on second, Makenzie Beaudry in center and Sam Higgins in right.
    Penquis played  great on defense but also had trouble getting their bats on the ball. Starting pitcher Megan Valvo, only a sixth-grader, did well to keep the normally hot bats of the Eagles cooled off. Valvo was plagued by some walks that the aggressive base  running of the Eagles turned into a number of base runners getting past home plate. Penquis also had a couple of double plays thanks to a strong performance from its third baseman.
    In the second game of the week the SeDoMoCha Eagles bats woke up a bit with  Ewer leading the way with four hits. Bickford also had two hard shots to the outfield. Three Eagles, Alli and Abbi Bourget and Becca Anderson, also laid down perfect bunts to get on base.  
    Clukey had another strong outing striking out 14 Lakers in her six innings in the pitcher’s circle. Abbi Bourget came in to close out the game in the seventh picking up two more strikeouts.
