Ellsworth’s 12U softball team won the silver bracket at the Baldwin tournament on Sunday, June 2, after defeating Menomonie 6-5 in a game that was decided by a Menomonie error.

The Panthers out-hit the Mustangs 7-5 and refused to commit an error in the game while the Mustangs made three errant plays.

Ellsworth’s three-player pitching staff combined for a 54% strike percentage, five earned runs, five strikeouts and five walks.

The Panthers are now 10-6 on the season and will return to action on Monday, June 3, with a double header in River Falls at 6 p.m.
