MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Columbus Catholic softball dropped a pair of Cloverbelt Conference East Division games on Monday at the Marshfield Fairgrounds.

The Dons lost to first-place Gilman 19-4 and Neillsville/Granton 6-1 in a pair of make-up games.

Gilman won the first game via the 15-run rule after four innings.

The Pirates (15-2, 10-2 Cloverbelt East) scored twice in the first inning, nine times in the second and finished off the win with an eight-run fourth.

Columbus committed seven errors in the loss.

Brooke Neider drove in two runs, and Annie Baierl had a double and scored a run for the Dons.

Columbus pitcher Addison Baierl limited Neillsville/Granton to four hits in a complete-game effort, but the Dons couldn’t muster enough offense.

Maren Seefluth drove in Annika Brown in the third innings for the Dons’ lone run. Seefluth and Brown both had two hits.

Columbus Catholic (5-10, 5-8 Cloverbelt East) finishes its regular-season schedule Tuesday at home against Greenwood.
