The Park Rapids Panthers pulled out a 3-2 squeaker in Game 1 but romped 12-6 in the nightcap Tuesday to sweep Wadena-Deer Creek in a Mid-State softball doubleheader.


Megan Popp drove in both of WDC's runs in the first game with a bases-loaded hit in the sixth to put the Wolverines on top 2-1.

The Panthers rallied to win in the seventh as a trap allowed two runs to score.

Steph Hahn fanned nine and walked two in the loss. Brieanna Warne struck out 11 and did not walk a batter in posting the win.

Alyssa Carlson went 2-for-3 for the Panthers and scored once.

Leah Dykhoff and Sam Holweger each had a pair of hits for the Wolverines.

Leeza Tostenson went 5-for-5, homered and scored three times for Park Rapids in the second game.

Kelly DeFoe supported her own pitching effort with a 3-for-4 day at the plate, a pair of runs and one RBI.

The Wolverines were guilty of five errors which allowed the Panthers to rally from a 6-1 deficit.

"We've played well at times," WDC head coach Craig Klawitter said. "We just need to shore up our defense."
