Softball: West Central Area sweeps Long Prairie

West Central Area's Amber Oberg led the Knights to a doubleheader softball sweep against Long Prairie-Grey Eagle last Thursday.

Oberg had three hits, including two doubles during a 9-3 loss in game one. She followed that up with a 3-for-3 performance in the nightcap to help WCA to an 11-10 win.

Both teams went back and forth in game two. West Central Area scored four in the middle innings to lead 9-6 before LPGE answered with four of their own. That gave the Thunder a 10-9 lead heading into the final frame.

Big hits by Lauryn Mclaughlin and Melissa Vikesland erased that and gave the Knights the one-run lead going to the bottom of the inning. Mclaughlin then secured the win with a strikeout to end the game.
