JV softball has tough outing against South Christian

The JV softball team went into last night’s showdown with South Christian looking to sharpen up defensive play and pull out two wins. Unfortunately, FHC lost 12-11 in the first game and the second game was ended early due to weather while the Rangers were down 5-4.

Freshman Faith Addington had another solid night in the circle for game one, racking up 8 strikeouts. However, the Ranger defense continued the sloppy play and accumulated 8 errors, allowing the 12 South Christian runs.

Offensive efforts were still hot with freshmen Bela Gonzalez and Kylie Halverson as well as sophomore Anna Breaugh earning multiple hits in game one. FHC also played strategically well, putting down 5 crucial bunts.

FHC was looking to make a comeback after falling behind 5-4 in the second game of the night before it was called due to weather. The Rangers had a runner on first with one out, and with the hot bats throughout the lineup it is likely the second game may have seen an FHC victory.

In the 3 innings of play in game two, sophomore Jordyn Carlson was 2-2 and freshman Katie Tellier had a homerun. FHC also put down 3 bunts to move the runners.

Sophomore Caitlin Snyder pitched 3 innings, had 3 strikeouts, walked none, and gave up 5 runs on 5 hits.

FHC looks to clean up the defensive efforts as the season winds down to come out playing their best against conference rival Lowell next week.
