High school softball: Confer’s gem leads Bellefonte over Clearfield

Stevi Confer limited Clearfield to two hits in six innings to lead Bellefonte to a 6-1 victory on Monday.

The Lady Red Raiders (10-8) scored four runs in the third behind three extra base hits. Jenna Ault tripled to get Bellefonte on the board, and Olivia Ripka and Vanessa Cooper followed with back-to-back RBI doubles. Cooper drilled a two-run home run to add to the Lady Raiders’ lead in the fifth.

Confer struck out six and walked two in the winning effort.

“She moved the ball around a lot,” Bellefonte coach Gregg Kohlhepp said. “We played great defense behind her.”
