The Northfield softball team played host to Whitko Tuesday, falling to the Wildcats 7-4.
Whitko jumped on the Norse for 1 run in the first and 2 in the second to lead 3-0 before the Norse answered in the bottom of the second with a run on an Abby Keaffaber home run to make it 3-1.
The scoring would pick up again in the fourth when Whitko scored 1 run in the top of the inning before Keaffaber hit her second bomb of the game to make it 4-2.
The game would remain 4-2 until the seventh when the Wildcats scored 3 times to grab a 7-2 lead. The Norse made things interesting in the bottom of the inning when Kiana Kendall drew a one out walk before pinch hitter Ashley Koch hit the Norse third home run of the game to make it 7-4. With two outs Abby Keaffaber would draw a walk and was ran for by Abbey Ross. Michelle Hunt would then single to bring the tying run to the plate before a strike out ended the game.
