HS Softball: Monticello Rolls Decatur Eisenhower

In a game heard on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com, Lizzie Stiverson hit a two-run home run and scored three runs helping Monticello shut out Decatur Eisenhower 15-0 in four innings Friday afternoon from Monticello High School in non-conference high school girl's softball action.


Stiverson's two-run blast through a stiff wind Friday capped a four-run second inning to lead 6-0 and the Lady Sages tacked on eight more runs in the third to open up a 14-0. A run in the fourth ended the game on the 15-run rule.


Stiverson was the Piatt/DeWitt County Player of the Game and finished 2-for-2 with a run-scoring double in the first inning and scored three runs. Addison Wallace was 2-for-2 with three runs scored, a double and drove in two. 


Hannah Uebinger was 1-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base. 


Reese Patton tossed four shutout innings, striking out eight on zero walks and only one hit. 


The Lady Sages even their record at 2-2.


The next Monticello sports broadcast on WEZC and at dewittdailynews.com is Monday when the Sages baseball team hosts Lincoln.
