Mohawk Softball Squad Battling Through Slump
The Lady Mohawk softball squad has been battling through a slump, dropping a double-header to Melbourne last week at home, and falling to Marmaduke in a pair of tournament games Saturday. Tuesday afternoon they were slated to host Walnut Ridge at Independence Park in conference play.
The Tribe dropped a pair to the Lady Bearkatz last Thursday, falling 5-0 in the first game and 6-1 in the nightcap.
In the first game Abby Dutka and Grayson Murray were the only Mohawks to muster hits, while Lexi Herren got the start in the circle and took the loss. On the game Melbourne scored their five runs on nine hits while recording two errors, while the Tribe only had two hits to their credit, while committing three errors on the game.
In the second game Melbourne jumped to a 3-0 lead after one, adding single runs in the second, third and fourth en route to the win. The Tribe's lone run came as Murray scored in the fourth to ruin the shut-out. Murray had one hit on the game, while Hayley Earnhart had a pair of hits and Herren another.
Hannah Powell got the start and took the loss, working four innings while giving up eight hits, walking none and striking out two Lady Bearkatz. Of the six runs given-up by the Tribe, only four were earned as they had two errors on the game.
Saturday the Mohawks traveled to Marmaduke and took on the host Lady 'Hounds in tournament play, dropping a pair, 12-2 and 12-1 in non-conference action.
Tuesday afternoon the squad was scheduled to host Walnut Ridge, although final score and stats were not available as of press time. Thursday they're slated to travel to Highland to take on the Lady Rebels, and next Monday, April 17, they'll visit the Corning Lady Bobcats in conference play.
