No win at Windsor Game between Blue Devils, St. Anthony suspended

WINDSOR -- St. Anthony barely had any time to savor its lead Wednesday afternoon.

After a six-run fourth inning catapulted the Bulldogs ahead of Windsor 6-1, Mother Nature came in to play.

Following a strikeout by St. Anthony's Kate Richards to start the fifth inning, a thunder clap halted the game for a half hour. With rain on the way, the game was officially suspended and will resume on a later date.

St. Anthony coach Crystal Tipton said in an email she did not know when that date would be.

The Bulldogs started the game off with a slap single by Paige Koester, who advanced to second on an error. Morgan Gardewine reached on an error when the wind got a hold of her pop up. Koester tried to advance to home on the play, but was gunned down, keeping the game scoreless.

Errors weren't limited to the Windsor side. The Blue Devils' first three batters in the bottom of the first -- Dani Bell, Lindsay Floyd and Whitney Kuhl -- all reached on an error. With the bases loaded, Meghan Woltman threw a wild pitch to score Bell.

But she buckled down from there, getting back-to-back strikeouts and a groundout to end the inning down 1-0.

Woltman would duel with Windsor's Floyd on the mound, as the two started racking up outs over the next two innings.

Things began to unravel for Windsor in the fourth. Kristen Schuette led off with a double to left field. Following a strikeout, Hunter Niebrugge reached first on on a pop up that fell in between the Windsor fielders and promptly stole second.

Woltman hit a fly ball to left, but it bounced off Charley Bailey's glove and scored Schuette, tying the game. D.J. Brummer got the next run home when she reached on an error by Kuhl, and then Megan Nuxoll laced a double to center to make it 4-1.
