Kynzie Mohl threw a 3-hitter and doubled, and Kenadie Goudette doubled and homered as Glacier won its 2021 softball opener Thursday, 13-3 over Columbia Falls.

Mohl went the distance in a game shortened to six innings because of the 10-run rule. She walked three and fanned six.

The Wolfpack trailed 3-2 heading to the bottom of the third inning but scored twice in their half — including a solo homer from Goudette, a freshman — and pulled away.

“I was very impressed with our balanced performance,” Glacier coach Abby Connolly said. “We started three freshmen and one sophomore and were still able to produce runs in every inning.

“Kynzie Mohl did a great job pitching. She really picked up momentum in those third and fourth innings. Halle Schroeder did a great job behind the plate and hitting.

Emma Cooke, another freshman, hit two doubles. Mohl, Goudette and Schroeder all drove in two runs.

Alyssa Blankenship had two hits and an RBI for Columbia Falls.

The Pack is home again today, playing Great Falls Russell at 3 p.m. and Great Falls High at 5.
