ATHENA - The Weston-McEwen softball team trailed 6-3 going into the bottom of the sixth inning in a non-league game against McLoughlin Saturday but rallied for six runs to eventually win 9-6.

With a squad made up mostly of underclassmen, coach Jeff Griggs said he wasn't sure what to expect in the last two innings.

"You don't coach that, you encourage it but you don't know how the girls are going to respond," he said. "I was really pleased and happy for them to do that, to have that comeback experience and know they can do that. We are a pretty young group and I think the kids showed a lot of resolve."

Haley Freske picked up her second win of the season for the 'Scots (2-1), striking out nine with one walk and three earned runs.

Addie Terjeson was 3 for 4 with three runs and led off the sixth with her second double of the game. Rilei Hill got the scoring started in that inning with a bases-loaded double.
