At St. Ignatius, the Mission-Arlee-Charlo Lady Bulldog softball squad kicked off their season by routing the Lady Wardens of Deer Lodge in their conference clash. Every M-A-C batter reached base during the course of the abbreviated contest either by hit, walk or bean ball.

Leadoff hitter Jerny Crawford smacked an RBI triple, while sister Rheid Crawford generated five RBIs with a pair of doubles. The Lady Bulldogs benefitted from 10 base runners getting on board either by walk or hit-by-pitch.

Kooper Page fanned a half dozen, throwing a one-hit shutout while issuing only one walk.

M-A-C faces three Class A teams in nonconference action as they host Hamilton and travel to Frenchtown, followed by a faceoff with the Maidens in a cross classification county clash on Tuesday, April 6, in Ronan.
