Dogs lose on perfect game, walk off at Glacier

KALISPELL — The Butte High Bulldogs lost two non-conference games in memorable fashion Tuesday.

Defending Class AA State champion Kalispell Glacier beat Butte High 6-0 behind a perfect game by Ali Williams in the opener. Glacier completed the sweep when Erin McHugh hit a walk-off grand slam for a 12-9 victory.

The games were make ups of an earlier rain out.

Next up for the Bulldogs (7-12 overall) is Thursday’s conference doubleheader at Great Falls Russell. The Bulldogs must win one to host a playoff series.

Game 1
Kalispell Glacier 6, Butte High 0

Williams was simply amazing in the opener.

She struck out 20 of the 21 batters she faced. She needed just 77 pitches, 63 of which went for strikes.

Butte High shortstop Kennedi Ferriter grounded out to her counterpart at short in the fourth inning. That was the only ball put in play against Williams, who now owns the only two perfect games in school history.

Williams tossed a perfecto against Missoula Hellgate on April 22.

The Wolfpack scored all six runs in the second inning, which was highlighted by Anna Schrade’s grand slam.
