While visiting Gunnison on Tuesday, the Lady Spartans kept the game tied until the fourth inning when Gunnison grabbed a lead and didn’t let go, finishing 8-5.
Both teams managed three runs in the second and put up an additional in the third. In the fourth, however, Gunnison managed a fifth run and continued their scoring, topping off at eight and taking the victory besides a fifth run by the Spartans in the seventh.
Madisyn Alton finished with two RBIs for the Black and Gold while Morgann Donaldson Carlie Robinson each grabbed one for their team as well. Donaldson would also grab a double for Emery.
Bailey Huggard managed to strike out four of Gunnison’s players before being awarded the loss on the mound.
Emery will next host Gunnison on Friday at 3:30 p.m. before continuing their hosting action, welcoming cross-county rival Carbon on Wednesday at the same time.
