Coach Carson comments…”Defensively we held a good hitting team to only two runs. Buman pitched a great game. We made a few mistakes, however our two errors were aggresive mistakes trying to make tough plays. Offensively we took a step forward following our Eastern opener. The girls are looking more comfortable in the batters box, but we still have a ways to go. “
