“We struggled in the first inning but got our acts together and pulled off six runs,” said sophomore first baseman Madi Grazier, “everyone hit and fielded well.  As long as we keep a positive attitude, we will keep improving.”

In the top of the first inning, the Lady Eagles started off shaky, giving up five runs to start the game.

“They were a solid hitting team,” said junior pitcher Anna Baran, “I gave up a few hits and walks in the top of the first, but we were trying out a new field. Once we got settled in and stated to score the whole mentality switched.”

The Lady Eagles were able to answer with two runs in both the bottom of the first inning and the bottom of the second making the score 5-4.

In the bottom of the third, the Lady Eagles tied up the game on an RBI from Baran.

However, the Lady Bison then answered with three runs in the top of the fourth, and the Lady Eagles only scored one.

After the fourth, the Lady Bison were able to score three more to seal the win.

“Even though we lost, it was still a great game.  We arte getting closer and closer to our goal of winning.  I see improvement in everybody,” said sophomore 2nd baseman Haley Durbin.

The Lady Eagles will be back in action tonight, April 6th, vs. the Lady Mounties in Philipsburg at 4:30pm.
