AlBrook battles Floodwood, ends season
By: Tyler Korby, Pine Journal
The Falcons gave Floodwood a run for their money.
Challenging the third-seeded Polar Bears on the road Tuesday, sixth-seeded AlBrook gave it their best, but fell short in a 6-5 loss in the opening round of the Section 7A softball playoffs in Floodwood.
Floodwood – who defeated the Falcons 3-0 earlier this spring – were well on their way to the same result Tuesday, scoring two runs in the first inning and four more in the third to take a commanding 6-0 lead, before the Falcons answered back with five runs of their own.
Although they fought throughout the game, AlBrook (7-8) never led. Danielle Jakubek led the Falcons with two hits and both Laurel Morris and Kendra Dallmann roped doubles.
Star hurler Molly Johnsen had 11 strikeouts for Floodwood.
