DILLON — Butte Central’s softball team completed the season sweep of the Dillon Beavers Tuesday.
This time, the Maroons picked up the victory in a good, old-fashioned slugfest.
Emma Keeley knocked in four runs, and Zoe Doherty drove in three as the Maroons beat Dillon 11-9 in a Southwestern A game.
The top three players in BC’s lineup combined for nine hits in the victory.
Keeley, who caught Makala Doherty’s complete game, and Doherty both hit a pair of doubles. Doherty went 3 for 5, while Keeley had a 2-for-5 day. Leadoff hitter Sofee Thatcher went 4 for 5 with a double. Makala Doherty fanned five Beavers in the win.
Cassidy Strizic, Maci Reopelle and Maggie Stimatz each singled and drove in a run in BC’s 12-hit attack. Dillon also knocked a dozen hits. Shylee Ledbetter and Jess Zimmerman each went 3 for 5, while Madi Ruegsegger blasted a home run to lead the way. Kylee Pittman, Abby Brevig, Makya Dubois, Alexandria Johnston and Christina Hernandez added singles.
Pittman struck 11 batters in the loss.
The Maroons will close out the season Saturday against Stevensville at Stodden Park.
