5/23/2022 Robins vs Anoka-Hennepin
The Robins closed out the 2022 adapted softball regular season with a non-conference matchup against the Anoka-Hennepin Mustangs at Armstrong High School. The Robins were determined to prove they were better than the first two games against Anoka seemed to show, and for the most part, they accomplished that mission. The Robins nearly eliminated the fielding errors that hampered them previously, and actually were quite sharp in the field, turning three double plays. Anoka scored 3 runs in the first inning, but weren’t able to get a comfortable lead until much later. In fact, the Robins got within 4-3 after a two-run home run by Nick Johnson in the fourth inning, then got close again at 6-5 in the sixth inning when Darius Larson drove in two runs with a single to right field. Anoka found holes in the Robins defense in the seventh inning, and scored the 5 run maximum to put the game away, winning 11-5. Lucas Harper and Mark Cleveland both finished the game with 2 hits each. The Robins will now start preparing for the state tournament on June 3-4 at Chanhassen High School where they will be the #2 seed from the North Conference.
