MIFFLINBURG -- After proving that pitchers Hannah Boop and Chelsea Mitchell can both get the job done inside the circle for Mifflinburg, the Wildcats let it be known that they have a third hurler in that mix.
Sara Stauffer stepped inside the circle on Thursday and tossed a three-hitter to lead Mifflinburg to an 11-1, six-inning victory over Selinsgrove in Heartland-I action.
Stauffer struck out four and walked just one, and the bulk of her offense game from Molly Davis, who went 2-for-3 with a double and four RBIs.
Tori Hackenberg and McKenzie Noll added two hits apiece for the Wildcats (8-1, 6-1 HAC-I), with Noll also getting a double and two RBIs.
Selinsgrove falls to 1-6, 1-6.
