Goshen wins first game, drops second

Published 11:02 pm Friday, March 5, 2010

Like Charles Henderson, the Goshen softball team was also in Troy, competing in the Trojan Classic.

And like the Trojans, the Eagles got off to a good start, thanks to a 4-3 win over Headland.

Alli Warrick pitched her second complete game of the season, and though three Headland runners crossed the plate, each of the runs were unearned.

“I thought Alli pitched a great game (Friday night),” head coach Dee Hughes said.

“We didn’t play as well as I thought we would in the field – and that is something we have to fix quickly.”

Hughes continued by saying that pre-game jitters may have been the culprit for the sloppy defense.

“We have a young infield, and I think the girls were a little nervous coming into the game.

“But the win is something that will definitely help us the rest of the way,” the coach added.

The Eagles would drop its second game to Marbury however, to end the first night of the Classic with a 1-1 record.

GHS will enter bracket play this morning with an 11 a.m. start at the Troy Sportsplaex.
