The under-10 Stettler Bears softball team finally played its first home game Monday against Delburne.

It was another great night for baseball as the teams battled back and forth. The game ended in a 4-4 saw-off, but it wasn’t without some great plays.

Stettler was able to load the bases in the third inning, but strong pitching from Delburne kept the Bears to just one run.

In the field, Alandra Couch had a strong game for the Bears, stopping a couple of well-hit grounders at second base. Alyssa Koch led Stettler offensively with a couple of hits and an RBI.

The Bears were rained out last week, but the week before they got in a game with Bashaw.

Weather was also a factor that night, as the game featured a 20-minute rain delay.

After the sky let up, the Bears were able to put up a big inning and pull away for the win.

Donna Broemeling’s two-hit effort led Stettler, while Kirsten Bish had a nice unassisted put-out at first base.

The Bears also benefited from great pitching from Hannah Elines and Emmalee Paschke.
