HERMANTOWN -- Errors haunted the Bemidji High School softball team on Saturday, as the Lumberjacks committed an unlucky 13 miscues during a doubleheader at Hermantown.

The Hawks used that to their advantage, and the Lumberjacks lost 12-5 and 12-3 decisions to close out the regular season.

In game one, Hermantown (15-2) scored three runs apiece in the first three innings for a fast 9-1 advantage.

Lexie Tatro belted a solo home run in the fourth inning -- her fifth blast of the season -- which cut it to 9-2. BHS also added three more runs in the sixth behind Brooke Vogel’s pinch-hit, two-RBI single, but the quick deficit ended up being too great to recover from.

In game two, the Hawks once again did their damage early and often. This time, the biggest blow came during a six-run fifth inning that widened the margin from 5-3 to 11-3.

Jody Pemberton scored a run for Bemidji in the first inning, and Beth Bolte and Adie Potratz reached home in the third inning, but Hermantown blew it open with their hit parade in the fifth to all but finalize the victory.

The Lumberjacks end the regular season with a 7-10 record and now look forward to Section 8-4A Tournament play. They earned the No. 8 seed and will host No. 9 St. Cloud in a play-in game, set for 4:30 p.m. on Monday, May 23, at the BHS softball field.
