The Chelsea softball team fell into a first-place tie with Tecumseh after splitting a doubleheader with Pinckney Monday.

Tecumseh holds the top spot with a 11-2 conference record, while the Bulldogs still have two games to make up with Jackson and sit at 10-2. The game between the Bulldogs and Indians that was suspended in the seventh inning tied at 8-8 means more than ever now. The game that could likely decide the SEC White title will be completed at Tecumseh May 21.

Tori Parisho’s booming bat was the difference in the 11-9 opening game win over the Pirates Monday.

Parisho smacked a pair of three-run homers and finished with six RBI in the game.

Things got a little dicey in the end after Chelsea built an 11-3 lead in the sixth.

Pinckney scored two in the bottom of the sixth and four in the seventh and had the tying run at the plate, but Parisho got a strikeout to end the game.

Parisho earned the win with nine strikeouts in the circle.

The Bulldogs pounded out 16 hits in the game, led by Ella Root, who went 4-4 with two runs scored.

Jenna Ouellette had three hits and two RBI, and Kaydee Absher two hits, including a home run and an RBI. Avery Lay and two hits and an RBI, Dani Wahl two hits and a run scored, and Charlotte Diesing a hit and run scored.

Pinckney used a big eight run second inning to roll to a 12-4 win in the second game.

Chelsea took a 3-0 lead in the first, but the Pirates answered with eight in the second and never looked back.

Root led the offense with two hits, including a home run and two RBI.

Diesing had two hits, Lay a hit and RBI, Ouellette a hit and run scored, and Wahl one hit.

The Bulldogs rolled to wins over Huron and Pioneer later in the week.

Parisho and Diesing combined for a three-inning perfect game in the circle for a 16-0 win over Huron.

Kylie Beckel led the offense with a pair of hits and four RBI.

Lay had two hits and two RBI, while Ouellette had two hits and two runs scored. Absher, Charlotte Diesing, and Piper Diesing had a hit and two RBI each. Dani Wahl added a hit and RBI and Root finished with a hit and three RBI.

Chelsea then took down Pioneer 12-0.

Absher smacked a home run with two hits and three RBI, while Lay had three hits and two RBI.

Ouellette had three hits and two RBI, Root two hits and two RBI, Diesing a hit and two runs scored, Wahl a hit and two RBI, and Dark a hit and RBI. Parisho struck out ten for the win.
