The loss came in the Trojans’ first game after playing in the Gulf Coast Classic in Gulf Shores during spring break.
Molly Kate Sanders got the start for the Trojans. Sanders allowed eight total runs, seven of which were earned during her one inning inside the pitcher’s circle. She allowed seven hits and walked one.
Emma Kirkpatrick pitched the remaining three innings and allowed three total runs, two of which were earned on five hits, with four strikeouts.
The Trojans found themselves down quickly in the first inning when Rehobeth jumped on them for eight runs on seven hits, all of which came with two outs in the inning.
The Trojans scored their lone run of the game in the third when Ashlyn Shaver scored on a Kirkpatrick groundout.
Rehobeth closed out the scoring with two in the third and one in the fourth.
The Patriots finished with three hits. Shaver finished with two of the hits, while Whittika Lowery had one.
The Trojans will be back in action on Thursday when they travel to Montgomery to take on Brew Tech in a key area showdown.
