For the second time this season Cabrini and Divine Child squared off in a doubleheader and for the second time each came away with one victory.

After splitting a pair in April, the host Monarchs (14-5, 10-4 CHSL) dropped Fridayís first contest 9-4, but in the nightcap hung on for a 4-3 victory.

In the second game, Cabrini jumped out to a 4-0 lead, getting two runs in the first inning and two in the second.

Lily Ranspach and Peyton Lankford both reached base in the first inning and both scored, while in the second Robin Sprys and Lindsay Bzura got on base and then scored courtesy of passed balls.

The 4-0 score held up until the top of the fifth, when DCís Jasmine DeMare knocked in Becca Barnes with a one-out triple and Demare later scored on a Julie Bonk single. With two outs, Cabrini center fielder Angela Nappo ended the threat by running down a ball that was blasted to the fence by Lauren Sandie.

An inning later, an RBI triple from Barnes made it 4-3, but it was all the Monarchs would allow, as a ground ball and fly out got pitcher Montana Spears out of the inning and in the seventh she retired the side in order.

For the game, Ranspach, Bzura, Sprys, Nappo and Maddy Schultz accounted for Cabriniís five hits and both Schultz and Nappo earned an RBI.

Barnes was 3-for-3 with an RBI for the Falcons, DeMare was 1-for-4 with an RBI, Bonk was 1-for-4 with an RBI and Lauren Hamman was 2-for-4.

In the circle, Spears went the distance for the victory, as she struck out two batters, walked two, allowed two earned runs and yielded seven hits.

Jamie Klotz threw the last five innings for DC without allowing a run and she gave up only three hits and two walks.

To kick off the day, the Falcons were up 7-2 after five innings and ultimately used a 13-hit attack to take the 9-4 victory in the opener.

Bonk was 3-for-5 with a homerun and finished with two RBIs and three runs scored, while Klotz was 1-for-4 with two RBIs, Sandie finished 2-for-3 with one RBI and DeMare was 2-for-5 with an RBI.

Klotz threw all seven innings to pick up the victory and allowed only three walks along the way.

Amber Steeleman homered for the Monarchs and finished with two RBIs, while Channing Brzys was 4-for-4 with one RBI and Nappo was 1-for-4 with an RBI.

Next up for Cabrini is a trip to Lutheran North tomorrow for a doubleheader, while Divine Child will take on Flat Rock tomorrow in a doubleheader at Madonna College.
