Anne Schieber Tosses Perfect Game for NEN Junior High

Anne Schieber tossed a perfect game as Northeast Nodaway beat North Nodaway 13-0 Thursday afternoon. After North Nodaway went down in order in the first, Northeast batted around in the bottom of the inning as Madelyn Mattson, Angela Standiford, and Paige West all had doubles. Kami Adwell, Zayla Carlson, and Sarah Linville all had singles in the frame.

In the top of the second, Schieber had two tough plays. Alonna Cross led off the inning with a long drive to right field, but it was right at Angela Standiford, who hauled it in. In the bottom of the inning, she got to 3-1 against Audree Embley. The count went to 3-2, then Embley fouled off two pitches before striking out.

Delainey McIntyre hit a solid shot between third and short for an infield hit to start off Northeast’s second. Schieber helped herself out with a double down the left field line while Sarah Linville and Madelyn Mattson also got hits in the inning as Northeast added to their lead and went up 13-0.
The only suspense was whether Schieber could keep her perfect game intact. She got easy outs on her first two plays, but then got behind 2-0 to Saylor Brown. But she fought back to 2-2 and then got her to pop out to the mound to preserve her perfect outing.

The varsity had a frantic rally fall short against North Nodaway as they fell 8-6. But they picked up their first win of the season Monday, downing Pattonsburg 14-8.
