LEON — Yates Center High’s softball season came to a painful finish Tuesday, with the Burlingame Bearcats claiming an 11-0 shutout in the Class 2-1A Regional Playoffs.

“We had a rough outing,” Wildcat head coach Abbie Collins said. “We couldn’t string any hits together and we just had too many mistakes against a good team that took advantage of that.”

The Bearcats zipped out to a 4-0 lead after one inning and never looked back, tacking on three in the fifth and four in the fifth.

Morgan Collins and Molly Proper handled the pitching duties, while Proper, Allie Chrisman, Hannah Jones and Emma Grogg had hits.

“This was not how we wanted to end the season but the girls had a great season,” Collins said.

Yates Center ended with an 18-4 record. Burlingame’s subsequent Regional Championship game against Chase County was suspended due to weather in the top of the fourth with the Bearcats leading, 1-0.
