On Saturday, Continental hosted Columbus Grove in Putnam County League Softball. Two big innings by the Bulldogs decided the game. Columbus Grove scored 2 runs in their first at bat to take the early lead. A scoreless first by the Pirates was followed by an 11 spot by the Bulldogs to make it 13-0 after one and a half innings. The Pirates would battle back as they put 3 runs on the board in their half of the second and followed that up by scoring the only 2 runs in the third. Columbus Grove 13, Continental 5 after 3. The Bulldogs would put the game away with 8 runs in the fourth to take a commanding 21-5 lead. The Pirates would score one in the fifth for a 21-6 Bulldog final.
Riley Fenter took the loss for the Pirates. The Pirates had 3 hits with Catelyn Etter having a double and an RBI.
Continental finishes the season at 6-11 (3-3 PCL) while Columbus Grove is 9-10 (4-1 PCL).
