Portal MS notches softball win
PORTAL — The Lady Panthers on Portal’s middle school softball team ended a long drought Tues-day, notching a 15-9 victory over Collins for its first win in over a year.
Colby Motes went the distance on the mound for Portal, striking out seven.
The Panthers were on the brink of another loss, but a nine-run, seven-hit outburst in the sixth inning allowed them to finally break through.
Sloan Aubrey led the offensive charge, going 4-for-5 with a double and four runs scored.
Brianna Aldridge scored twice and recorded three hits and three steals. Madison Williams added a pair of hits and Motes helped her cause at the plate with two hits of her own.
