Visiting Falcons are state's second-ranked squad

It’s three years later and Dakota junior Corbin Hison still recalls being knocked out in a pre-district softball tournament game by Ford.

“I was a freshman,” she said.

While that loss didn’t put her into intensive therapy, it is something she definitely remembers.

Even though Dakota has returned the favor since by knocking Ford out of the state tournament, Hison put a little more salve on that ninth-grade recollection by ripping a triple in the fifth inning in a MAC Red game against Ford Thursday afternoon.

Dakota, the state’s top-ranked Division 1 team, earned a come-from-behind 3-1 victory over the visiting Falcons. Ford is ranked second in the state.

The victory raised Dakota’s record 9-0 in the MAC Red, 20-2 overall. Ford is 5-4 in the MAC Red, 21-5 overall.

Dakota, which has clinched another division championship, closes MAC Red play against Anchor Bay Tuesday. Ford concludes division play Tuesday against Eisenhower.

“I wasn’t thinking about a triple. I just knew we had a runner on second and I wanted to knock her in,” said Hison. “It felt good, though.”

Hison didn’t just get an RBI on the hit. She also came home herself when the throw from the outfield skipped and hit the edge of the Dakota dugout.

Those two runs made it 3-1.

“I just found out today that we’re number one and Ford is number two,” said Rick Fontaine, the Dakota coach. “We always have good battles against Ford. Everybody is always gunning for us. They’ve got a very good team.”

Both teams will play in a tournament in Ann Arbor Friday and Saturday. Ford takes on Jenison in its first game, while Ford plays Ann Arbor Huron.

This is the second time that Dakota has beaten Ford in MAC Red play. In the first game, a 6-0 victory, the Cougars ripped a three-run homer in the seventh.

There’s a chance two of the state’s top teams could meet in district play. If they do, it will be for the district championship at Utica.

Hison wasn’t the only person on the highlight reel for the Cougars. Olivia Patton scored their first run to even the score at 1-1 in the bottom of the fourth. She walked, stole second, and came home on an infield error.

Julia Salisbury had another good game for Dakota.

Pitcher Kendahl Dunford struck out nine in six innings of work. She gave up six hits.

Ford scored its run in the second on a hit by Laurin Prebelich. The Falcons held that lead until the fourth inning when Dakota evened the score.

Gabby Palazzolo had two hits in four at-bats. Pitcher Nikki Sorgi allowed just four hits. Only two of the Dakota runs were earned.

“I am proud of the way we competed,” said Matt Joseph. “I liked the attitude we had for seven innings. You can’t ask for anything more. If you play like we did today, you usually win.”
