The Clearfield Lady Bison softball team held their senior night Monday. The pre-game ceremony celebrated the contributions to the program from seniors: Alaina Fedder, Faith Gardner, Lucy Norris, Ava Lynch, and Alaina Moore. The team, however, lost 10-4 at the hands of the Penns Valley Rams, seeing their record drop to 6-8.

Senior Alaina Fedder was on the bump for Clearfield, coming into the game with an impressive 3.16 ERA. Fedder began the game by forcing two groundouts to third-baseman Sam Campolong. Following the smooth start, Penns Valley retaliated with back-to-back singles before a wild pitch allowed the first run to be scored.

The Bison were left scoreless the first two innings before Fedder helped herself with an RBI single driving in Ruby Singleton after she doubled and reached third on a wild pitch. Singleton had yet another impressive performance with a pair of doubles and RBIs. Left-fielder Madi McBride joined the extra-base-hit party, roping a double down the left field line in the bottom of the 4th.

The Bison and the Rams were in a close battle entering the 7th and final inning. The score was 5-4 before the Rams had a five-run explosion in the top of the 7th including a bases-clearing three run triple from #4 of the Rams. The Bison failed to get a baserunner in their final shot in the bottom of the 7th.
