The Crowder Lady Roughriders got back on the winning track by taking a pair Wednesday from Ecclesia, 8-0 and 11-0 both in five innings.
Crowder improved to 26-7 overall on the season.
In the opener, Crowder scored two runs in the second, one the third, three in the fourth, and two in the fifth, while pitchers Maddie Massanelli and Kylah Clark combined for a no-hitter.
Massanelli struck out six and walked one over her four innings of work, while Clark struck out three and walked none over her one inning.
Offensively, it was Kenzie Kallio who delivered the walk-off hit that brought home former East Newton standout and Crowder sophomore Taylor Mathis.
Kallio had two hits and Kenzi Spurgin and Theresa Collins joined Kallio in leading the 10-hit attack with two each. Kristen Wade, Baylor Miles, Mathis, and Kai Redus each had one hit.
Mathis tripled, while both Wade and Miles doubled, all three players taking advantage of their one hit.
In the nightcap, Crowder plated nine in the first and two in the second, more than enough run support for pitchers Mathis, Emma Hill, and former Neosho standout and Crowder freshman Cloe Neece.
Neece had a big second game, especially at the plate with three hits, two runs scored, and one RBI. Neece doubled and singled twice in her three at-bats. In the circle, Neece allowed one hit over 1 1/3 innings of work and both struck out and walked none.
Mathis, meanwhile, struck out two and gave up no hits during her two innings of work.
Offensively, in addition to Neece’s three hits, Redus and Makaila Leonhart each had a pair and Kallio, Collins, Clark, Spurgin, Wade, and Miles each had two. Wade doubled for the second extra-base hit of the contest for the ‘Riders.
Crowder pieced together 23 hits over the doubleheader, while Ecclesia only managed three, all on the back end of the doubleheader.
Crowder returns to action Friday with a pair on the road against Three Rivers and then the Lady ‘Riders return home Sunday to host St. Charles, all of course weather permitting.
