PORT BYRON -- Apparently, the Alleman softball team took to heart the missed offensive opportunities in its doubleheader sweep at the hands of Western Big 6 rival Moline last weekend.

One day after blasting off for 18 runs in a five-inning romp past Lincoln Trail Conference contender Mercer County, the Pioneers were at it again on a chilly Tuesday at Riverdale High School as they blitzed the Three Rivers Conference leading Rams 21-3.

"Moline had something to do with it, but we picked a bad day to have a bad day, and we told them they can't do that anymore,'' said Alleman coach Mike Ebner.

Alleman, 6-3, was led by shortstop Mackenzie Sanchez's 3-for-4, six-RBI performance, with catcher Maddie McGuire going 3-for-3 and driving in three runs.

Sending all nine of its hitters to the plate in all three innings.

Making matters worse for the Rams (4-1) was that their senior ace, Sadie Mosher, didn't pitch Tuesday because of a bruised right elbow, which meant sophomore Kara Keppy got her varsity baptism of fire in the circle.

"Sadie tried to loosen up, but just couldn't go,'' said Riverdale coach Teri Peterson. "We called upon a sophomore with no varsity pitching experience. Alleman had some good hits, but we also give them some extra outs.''
