JV softball falls to talented Hudsonville team twice

Sophomore Bela Gonzalez was a bright spot in the JV softball team’s lineup last night, as the Rangers struggled against a very talented Hudsonville squad. Bela had 2 of the team’s 3 total hits across both games, but Hudsonville would go on to take two wins by the mercy rule.

In game one, the Eagles’ pitcher threw a 1-hitter in which Bela earned FHC’s only hit to disrupt Hudsonville’s perfect game. The rest of the lineup could not score her, however, and the Rangers were shutout.

Freshman Alyssa Wierenga pitched in the first game to allow 10 runs on 11 hits with 1 strikeout and 3 walks. The Rangers, unfortunately, had 4 errors in the game, and the Eagles were able to win 10-0 in five innings.

The second game was more of the same, as FHC could only muster 2 hits. Bela hit .500 in this game with a basehit, while freshman Remmie Gavle went 1-1 for the Rangers’ other hit. FHC was again shut out by a solid Hudsonville defense.

Bela took the mound for the second game and allowed 15 runs on 10 hits with 3 walks. With 4 errors from the Ranger defense, the Eagles took the second game of the night in three innings with a score of 15-0.

The Rangers move to 7-13 (6-7) and will look to flush this game in preparation for their final conference doubleheader against Greenville on Wednesday.
