Fiser leads Benton to state with 10-1 win over New Hampton

Posted: Updated:
VAN HORNE (KWWL) -

Amber Fiser struck out 17 as top ranked Benton Community dropped New Hampton 10-1 to return to the class 3A state tournament.

Fiser's lone mistake came on the opening batter of the game as Jessica Crooks smacked an 0-2 pitch over the left field fence for a lead-off home run. Benton returned the favor in the bottom half of the inning as their lead-off hitter, Alyssa Weibel, drove an opposite field, line-drive, solo shot over the right field wall to even the game at one apiece.

Jessica Heilman provided the go-ahead run with a solo shot in the second. Benton Community scored 10 unanswered as last year's 3A runner-up punched their ticket back to Fort Dodge.

"It means a huge deal to us because we want to go back and finish what we didn't finish last year," said Fiser, "That's just been our goal the whole season. No matter how the season's going now, only these games matter."
