The Huron softball team swept Wednesday's doubleheader against cross-town rival Flat Rock. The Chiefs won the first game 15-2 in five innings and the second game 11 to 1 in four and two-thirds innings.

Summer Callahan went 5-for-7 at the plate with six RBI, four runs scored and a stolen base in both games to lead the Chiefs. Courtney VanRiper finished 4-6 with four RBI and a home run. Savannah Floyd drove in five and belted two homers.

"We hit well," Huron Coach Heather Holshoe said. "We made some nice defensive plays. We just focused in on playing together as a team."

Home runs by Floyd and VanRiper paced Huron's 15-2 rout in the first game. VanRiper launched a two-run shot to left field in the second inning. The senior pitcher was a triple shy of the cycle in the first game. Floyd's three-run home run highlighted Huron's five-run fourth inning.

VanRiper pitched three shutout innings with four strikeouts before being relieved by Lyndsey Robbins in the fourth inning. Robbins allowed Flat Rock's lone runs and struck out one in two innings of work.

Flat Rock's Stephanie Tylicki tossed a complete game in the loss. She allowed all 15 runs but collected two strikeouts.

Lauren Hoffman went 1-2 at the plate with a solo shot in the fifth inning. Cami Dusman drove in Hannah Myre on a third-inning fielder's choice for Flat Rock's other run.

Flat Rock committed four errors and allowed bloop hits throughout the doubleheader, problems Coach Steve Przybylo said have plagued the team this season.

"We didn't play good and they did. Our defense has been killing us all year," Przybylo said. The silly everyday mistakes, errors that we're making. They hit the ball real well and took advantage of our mistakes."

Huron continued to rely on the long ball in the second game.

Callahan capped off a three-run first inning with a two-run home run. The power surge continued when Julie Littler, Savannah Floyd, and Alexis Vella hit back-to-back-to-back long balls to lead off the second inning.

Alexa White plated Floyd and Erika Yancey on a two-run double to put the mercy rule into effect.

Michelle Bodary scored Flat Rock's lone run in twinbill's second game.

Littler went the distance for the Chiefs in the second game, striking out three and only allowing one run.

Ram's starter Sam Dymon lasted one inning in the second game before Alena Murphy took over on the mound.

Flat Rock (9-9, 0-6) returns to action Saturday for a tournament held at Carlson.

"We're going to try to battle to see if we can't come in .500 in the league," Przybylo said.

Huron (15-0, 8-0) hosts Saint Mary's Catholic Central for a doubleheader on Monday in a battle between undefeated juggernauts in the Huron League.
