The Storm Lake St. Mary's softball team was victorious for a second night in a row, this time in Wall Lake as they beat East Sac County 7-1 on Thursday.  

The Panthers got two-out RBI hits from Lizzie Lenhart and Ellie Bacon the first two innings.  East Sac loaded the bases with nobody out in the 3rd, but settled for only one run on a bases loaded walk to Mariah Friedrichsen.  

St. Mary's scored three runs with two outs in the 5th, capped by a two-RBI double by Elli Jensen.  The Panthers added two more in the 6th, including another RBI single by Lenhart.  

Danika Demers had three of St. Mary's 13 hits, and she scored three of their runs. 

East Sac had eight hits, including two by both Maci Gustavson and Jacie Teague.  

Jensen was the winning pitcher, and struck out nine.  Kara Wilkens struck out six, as the Raiders fall to 3-4.  They'll host OA-BCIG on Friday. 

St. Mary's is now 2-5.  They'll host GT-RA on Monday.
