PHS wins debut, Helmer has one-hitter

PLYMOUTH – Senior Erica Helmer fired a one-hitter as the Plymouth Panthers defeated visiting Kettle Moraine Lutheran (Jackson), 4-1, in softball action Tuesday afternoon.

The East Central Conference game was the season opener for both teams.

The only hit by the Chargers was a double by Shannon Cobian in the second inning.

“We played well for our first game and the cold conditions,” said Panther head coach Dawn Krebsbach.

“Helmer did a nice job controlling her pitches. The win definitely was a team effort.”

Helmer walked only two and had two strikeouts.

The Panthers took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning. Hannah Bucko ripped a double and advanced to third on Caitlyn Klemme’s single. Klemme stole second base and Bucko scored when the catcher’s throw went in to center field.

PHS added three runs in the fourth to go up 4-1. Jordyn Thomas had an RBI double and scored on a single by Kendra Stauss. Sommer Stoney’s sacrifice fly drove in Stauss.
