No. 5 Pioneer softball splits at W. Lafayette
WEST LAFAYETTE — Pioneer’s softball team, ranked No. 5 in Class A, opened the season with a split at Class 3A West Lafayette on Saturday.
The Panthers dropped the opener 6-2 but salvaged the split with a 3-1 win.

“Three hits, two errors and a walk got them three runs,” Pioneer coach John Bingaman said. “We had five errors and five walks and that was the difference in the game. Walks and defensive miscues will get you beat.
“We outhit them 9-8 but we didn’t get the hits together.”
Riley Morris had two hits and an RBI for the Panthers. Kayte Miller had two hits and Megan Smith added an RBI single.
Katie Bingaman allowed three earned runs on eight hits with five walks and one strikeout.
She was sharper in game two, allowing no earned runs on seven hits and one walk with four strikeouts.
Morris and Miller each had two hits again. Miller added an RBI sac fly. Brooklyn Mehrley had a two-run single. Kennedy Nies added a double.
The Panthers outhit the Devils 9-7 in game two.
“It was nice to salvage the split. We had one error and one walk in game two which was the difference,” John Bingaman said. “We had 18 hits in the doubleheader but only scored five runs.”
