Buffalo Bison Girls Softball scores huge upset against Elk River

The win gives the team back to back Section wins

After the slow start to the year, Buffalo Softball can’t seem to lose anymore. Buffalo just beat 5 ranked Moorhead 10-0, and beat the Number 1 ranked team in the section, Elk River, 4-1.

Five innings into the game against the Elks, the game was still tied 0-0. In the sixth inning, with two runners on base, Kenzie Pawelk hit a three-run homer to give Buffalo a 3-0 lead.

“It felt good to get back in the groove and to take down the number one team,” said Pawelk.

Madi Peters hit a single to score another run taking the Bison to a 4-0 lead. In the seventh inning Elk River got a run in to cut the lead to three. With two outs and two runners on base, Samantha Dondelinger made a nice grab to end the game, 4-1 in favor of the Bison.

Buffalo will face STMA Tuesday, May 28 in Saint Michael at 6 p.m. They’ve played them twice this season already and are 1-1 against them. Six teams remain in the double-elimination Section tournament, so the Bison are guaranteed to play on Thursday no matter the results tonight. Only four teams will remain in the tournament then.
