Rally not enough in home sweep to Cowgirls

After battling back to tie the opening game with Goodland, 5-5, it appeared the Scott City girls finally had the momentum to defeat their Great West Activities Conference rival.

Instead, it was Goodland who bounced back with four runs in the top of the fifth inning and grabbed the opener, 12-6. Goodland completed the sweep, taking the nightcap, 19-7.

The Lady Beavers (7-9) committed too many mistakes and gave up too many free passes, says head coach Erin Myers.

“They didn’t hit the ball that much better than we did,” she noted. “But we put too many runners on base and when they did get hits they were able to turn them into runs,” said Myers.

The Cowgirls were able to take advantage of 10 walks and three more times they reached when hit by a pitch.

Even though Goodland held only a 10-9 edge in hits, it was the extra base runners that allowed those hits to result in runs.
