DECORAH, IA (UWSP)  – The UW-Stevens Point softball team dropped two games to the Norse of Luther College Sunday afternoon, with both losses coming via the run rule. 

Game one:

The Norse jumped all over UWSP in the first inning, plating four runs, on their way to an 8-0 victory. 

The Pointers were unable to get anything going offensively as Luther continued to push runs across the plate. Jordon Schreiner (Kaukauna, WI/Kaukauna), Katie Krueger (Plover, WI/SPASH) and Morgan Koth (Cedarburg, WI/Kettle Moraine Lutheran) were the only Pointers to tally hits in the contest.  

Game two:

After a scoreless first two innings, the Norse' bats broke the game open, scoring in each of the next four innings, including a six run sixth inning to take game two 11-1. The Pointers showed a little life in the bottom of the sixth as Schreiner scored on a sacrifice fly by Alicia Hahnemann (Appleton, WI/West), but that was all UWSP would get as Luther's defense was solid all afternoon. 

Sam Raddant (Shawano, WI/Shawano) led the Pointers from the plate in game two, going 2-for-2 with a walk. 

UWSP (17-11, 3-3 WIAC) will return to action on Wednesday, April 24 as it hosts UW-Whitewater for two games against the Warhawks. First pitch set for 3 p.m.
